Fracking Protest Added on March 21, 2013 by Carolyn Van Houten. I shot my first protest the other day and it was quite an experience. From the Raging Grannies singing to people sporting huge masks and chanting, I was visually overwhelmed. Jan Berger places a mask over his head in preparation for the protest outside the NC Capitol Building in Raleigh, N.C. on March 19, 2013. A man, who had exited the Capitol building moments before, walks quickly by protestors. Sheila Beaudry waves handmade birds as though they were flying.
