On June 30th, the New York Court of Appeals ruled that the towns of Dryden and Middlefield could use local zoning laws to ban corporations from fracking, or hydraulic fracturing oil and gas, within municipal borders. This major victory gives Dryden and Middlefiel, and other communities across the New York State, more control over their environmental and economical development, and marks a historic triumph of local communities over the fracking industry.

"Dryden - The Small Town that Changed the Fracking Game" by EarthJustice depicts the inspiring story of this town in fighting the gas industry, reminding us how vital grassroots organizing and community mobilizing is in bringing policy change.

Deep Dish TV has also produced numerous programs that document the long-standing resistance of local communities around New York City against the gas industry. Watch them here or watch the the following video of protests against fracking pipelines.
