Fracking is a worldwide issue, and over 200 community groups in 20 countries are challenging hydraulic fracturing activities. These new oil and gas extraction technics use millions of gallons of water, sand and carcinogenic chemicals to break up and open shale rock deep underground. The harm to the environment can be severe. Come learn about fracking, and what you can do to help.
