More than 1,000 demonstrators have marched to the state Capitol to demand that Gov. Andrew Cuomo ban shale gas drilling and high-volume hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking.”

Cuomo is expected to decide in coming weeks whether to allow fracking after the Department of Environmental Conservation completes a four-year review of health and environmental impacts.
