Our allies in Canada have urged us to spread the word about an important fossil fuel resistance effort underway in the town of Rexton, in New Brunswick, happening now. New Brunswick is one of the largest geographic areas under consideration for expanded fracking. For more information about Shale Gas drilling in New Brunswick, click here.
A group First Nations protestors and their allies gathered in the region to confront expanded shale-gas drilling, beginning on Sept 30, according to the Canadian Broadcasting Company.
Please help spread the word about this as a way to support our allies. Here is a livestream to follow updates.
We are nearly a week into Reclaim Power — a global month of action on energy. The next big day to come up is this year's Global Frackdown, a day when communities around the world are uniting to demand a shift to clean, renewable energy and debunk the myth of shale gas as bridge fuel.
To help get the word out in the coming days, there is a whole set of social media resources to help make it easy to spread the word online here: http://www.globalfrackdown.org/social-media
And here's a clip of 350.org co-founder Bill McKibben joining in the call to action for this Saturday:(More...)
Frack Free California
We’re mobilizing the California climate movement to tell Gov. Brown to stop fracking in California. Climate leaders don’t frack!
Frack Free UK
Prime Minister David Cameron promised his would be the “greenest government ever”. Yet through supporting hydraulic fracturing – or fracking – he is recklessly pursuing new sources of fossil fuels. Join our call for a Frack Free UK.
