Protesters March Through Annapolis to Oppose Fracking
A group of more than a hundred protesters gathered near the steps of the Maryland State House Wednesday to decry fracking in Maryland.

Hydraulic fracturing, commonly called fracking, is an industrial method used to extract gas from rock deep beneath the earth.

Protest groups included the Sierra Club, Chesapeake Earth First and dozens of area residents opposed to fracking in Maryland came out Wednesday to voice their opposition at the start of the assembly.

A video of the protest was uploaded to YouTube Thursday by Wilma Lossed.
