Hassig to perform at St. Lawrence County fair talent show


Green Party congressional candidate Don Hassig will show off his dancing skills at the St. Lawrence County Fair talent show.
Trying to summarize Mr. Hassig's news release won't do it justice, so I'm posting it in its entirety. He's on the ballot on Nov. 6 against Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh, and Republican Matt Doheny.

"I love the Earth Mother. She has given all of us so much. She has suffered a terrible onslaught of abuses during the brief history of the industrial age. The oil and gas companies are harming our Mother the Earth far beyond what is acceptable. The use of high volume hydraulic fracturing (HVHF) to drill oil and gas wells is an extremely polluting activity. This must be stopped. I support a total ban on HVHF in the United States.

"I am a strong believer in the power of dancing and music to move people higher. I deeply value my freedom of speech. I have created an original dance piece titled, "Stop Abusing Our Mother or We the People Will Force You to Stop". I will perform this piece in the Talent Show event at the St. Lawrence County Fair. The Talent Show stage is a wonderful free speech venue. I am hopeful that the audience will join into this performance by chanting, "We love our Mother. We will protect her now." and "Stop abusing our Mother now or we will force you to stop." This is one more step on the path of the American people rising up to bring an end to the corporate destruction of Nature."-Donald L. Hassig
