There is no doubt that fracking violates human rights. Don’t miss this opportunity to provide testimony on how your human rights have been violated by fracking.
“This PPT is hugely significant because it will make important decisions on a key international issue: the uncontrolled spread of unconventional resource extraction.
“Fracking has taken place around the world in spite of serious public opposition and with large numbers of people alleging that their human rights have been ignored by those who supposedly represent them. This PPT aims to consider those allegations in an even-handed and judicial way.”
A coalition of human rights lawyers and academics has been granted an opportunity to put fracking on trial at hearings to be held in the UK and the United States. Other countries are encouraged to hold preliminary mini tribunals.
This is your opportunity to submit testimony on how fracking violates human rights. Are you tired of having your rights violated and trampled on for the rights of the minority?
The hearings on fracking are scheduled for 2017 and evidence will be invited from across the world. It will include:
- Personal witness statement
- Expert testimony on the practices and impacts of fracking
- Findings from preliminary hearings in other countries
