Anti-Fracking Protest Planned for the 22nd Of September
Join The Global Frackdown This Saturday At ParliamentBy:
Just 12 days ago, the South African government lifted the moratorium on shale gas exploration in the Karoo, essentially opening up the fragile and uniques ecosystem to large scale, sustained, environmental destruction.
Send a message to our government on Global Anti-Fracking day, September 22nd 2012, by joining other South Africans who are opposed to fracking, when they CALL FOR A PERMANENT BAN ON FRACKING in South Africa.
In Cape Town, protesters will meet in front of the gates of Parliament, corner of Plein Street and Roeland Street at 10h30. Bring your anti-fracking banners and posters! The event is open to everyone and supported by several organisations, including Earthlife Africa, SAFCEI, Southern Cape Land Committee, Environmental Monitoring Group, Coalition for Environmental Justice, Treasure the Karoo Action Group and others.
