Umvoti still being ‘fracked’ off

2015-12-02 06:00

DAYS go by without a whisper from the SLR Consultants as to the calling of the vital and legally required public participation meeting in Umvoti on exploration on 10 000 farms in the area with the expectation of fracking in the future.

Anti-fracking activists, making up at least 100% of Umvoti believe it is becoming more unlikely that SLR Consultants will even bother to call this important meeting.
In the meantime more negative facts and figures are coming to light as activists delve into the many dubious aspects of personnel and companies involved in the fracking debacle, not only in South Africa, but throughout the world.

Its amazing what can be found on the Internet.
