We got down with the Global Frackdown

November 3, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

On October 19, citizens all over the world came together to call for a moratorium on fracking, as well as other oil and gas stimulation activities that threaten human health and the environment.

In California, recently passed SB4 aims to regulate this kind of oil and gas development. But with Global Frackdown, citizens are instead calling for a moratorium on fracking — perhaps because the track record of state enforcement across the country has shown state regulation is tantamount to no regulation at all. So with their call for a moratorium, communities are demanding their health be protected as a first priority, ahead of corporate profits.

Several citizen groups provided information on fracking, collected signatures, and marched towards the Inglewood Oil Field calling for a moratorium. A bike tour led people on a visit of the oil field, as well as several neighborhoods where strong odors are present at all times, and people are suffering from adverse health effects.
