Protesters boycott Shell service stations in a bid against fracking

2013-10-21 00:00

THE persistent rains on Friday could do little to deter protesters in Durban objecting to fracking, a bid to protect the environment and the scarce water resources.

Alice Thompson of Earthlife Africa eThekwini said: “We are opposing fracking for various reasons, one being the fact that it uses huge quantities of water. About 640 million litres of water is used to frack one ‘well pad’ once, thus threatening South Africa’s scarce water resources.” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
