You see signs all over the area -- either for or against hydrofracking. Monday afternoon, buses carrying local people against fracking arrived in Albany for a large rally.
Some of the protestors shared the rallying call with News10NBC before they left Monday morning from the Bushnell's Basin Park and Ride lot in Perinton.
This is expected to be the largest hydrofracking rally in New York State. Thousands are expected to show up and urge Governor Cuomo to ban the controversial natural gas drilling process.
Barbara Boyce said, “One of the concerns about this drilling is that it produces some really nasty toxic waste. We have to deal with that afterwards, after the drilling is done and the companies have their gas and it gets shipped out of the US.”
Opponents say hydrofracking will contaminate water supplies and New York should instead take the lead on renewable energy,
