Fracking is an environmental justice issue.
So energy justice and climate justice activists can be important allies. Some of those activists are part of Rising Tide North America. The Council of Canadians also does some campaigning around those sorts of issues.
In Ontario there is an active environmental justice group called S.H.A.M.E. There also have been efforts from Climate Justice London, Environmental Justice Toronto, and Climate Justice Ottawa. Others have made similar contributions, and it’s not possible to list everyone.
We can’t stop fracking without confronting dirty, deadly, and unsustainable industries.
And the most vulnerable groups are bound to get the least benefits from shale gas — if we don’t stop that from happening.
