The Global Frackdown is an international day of action to ban fracking and encourage the deployment of safe, renewable energy. This year marks the third Global Frackdown, uniting concerned citizens everywhere to call for change on October 11, 2014.
Collectively, we will send a message to elected officials in communities around the world that we want a future powered by clean, renewable energy — not dirty, polluting fossil fuels. The journey to a renewable energy future will not be fueled by shale gas.
As the oil and gas industry escalated its public relations offensive, it is critical that our elected officials hear the truth from their constituents. It’s time to expose the oil and gas industry’s desire to profit at the expense of our communities and our environment. It’s time to hold our elected officials accountable. It’s time for another Global Frackdown.
Participants in the Global Frackdown will organize evetns in their communities, united around a common mission statement calling for a ban on fracking and investment in clean energy future.
