A bus will leave the First Unitarian Universalist Church (corner of Elm and Illinois Streets) at 11:45 p.m. today with local residents who will join thousands of “fracktivists” in Washington, D.C., on Saturday for the Stop the Frack Attack, the first national protest of fracking.

Fracking is the process in which water, chemicals and sand are blasted into rocks thousands of feet below the ground to unlock natural gas and oil. It has come under fire because of its potential environmental concerns.

The summit culminates in a rally on the west lawn of the Capitol at 2 p.m. Saturday followed by a march at 3:30 p.m. to the headquarters of America’s

Natural Gas Alliance and the American Petroleum Institute.
