The oil and gas industry is ramping up its PR machine to try and convince the public and decision makers that fracking is safe.
But fracking for oil and gas poses a direct and immediate threat to our drinking water, our health and our communities.
The Global Frackdown will unite communities on five continents in over 100 events on September 22 to call for a ban on fracking and to advocate for the development of clean, sustainable energy solutions.
Initiated by Food & Water Watch, over 150 consumer, environmental and public health organizations including CREDO Action, Environment America, Democracy for America and 350.org are taking part in the Global Frackdown.
