The lady below would like visit with people who participate in protests. Her contact information follows the message.
Thank you so much for posting something on your blog - I hope that not only will it help further my research, but also that it will help others realize that there are many others out there who are going through similar issues with the gas industry. After watching footage from July 14th's TCEQ hearing, I see that there are a number of people who share similar concerns - but my ideas that we all need to come together and fight harder were only solidified.
I'm interested in conducting research on the dynamics, motives, behaviors, and patterns of natural gas protests. I'm looking for information concerning the protesting process and whether or not one feels it has been successful or not, any reasons why one feels a need to protest the drilling, how difficult (or easy) it has been to come together with others, and the names of any groups or group leaders who may be able to give further information. I hope to in the near future administer a brief questionnaire or survey to protesters, but right now am just looking for basic information. Any and all help is appreciated!
