We linked to this in Drill Bits, but if you didn’t catch it, here’s an article on yesterday’ zombie drilling protest in Dimock.

DIMOCK TWP. – Their faces painted a ghostly white and their shirts stained red, area residents and activists warned others about what they believe happens when “gas drilling goes bad.”
About two dozen people dressed as zombies and other creatures met at the Dimock Baptist Church on Sunday to protest natural gas drilling impacts and, in particular, the decision by the state Department of Environmental Protection to let Cabot Oil and Gas Corp. stop supplying fresh bottled and bulk water to township residents whose well water has been tainted with methane.
…The protesters don’t agree with either DEP or Cabot. At the church, they passed out cups of “Kabot Kool-Aid” and ration coupons for one glass of water. At the church’s door, a fog machine simulated air pollution and a bottle of Asian fish sauce represented the odor from the mud caused by drilling, residents said.
