Actor Mark Ruffalo on Terror List for Screening Anti-Gas Drilling Film

Accomplished Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo (Zodiac, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) has been added to the Pennsylvania Department of Homeland Security’s terrorism watch list after he organized a screening of Gasland, a documentary that excoriates the practice of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” a gas-drilling technique that poisons drinking water.

The city of Pittsburgh recently banned fracking and it looks like the Pennsylvania Department of Homeland security is once again looking out for corporate interests as much as it is looking out for terrorists. They recently declared another documentary, Coal Country, to be a “potential catalyst for inspiring ‘direct action’ protests or even sabotage against facilities, machinery, and/or corporate headquarters.”

They’ve also been monitoring the online activities of some peace activists. Here’s a trailer for the “terrorist” film Ruffalo screened:
