Community Protocols and Fracking - NJ Holds Another Meeting with Nelspoort Community Members

Following on from an initial meeting with community members in Nelspoort in March, Stephanie Booker and Marisa Choy of Natural Justice held a further meeting with a range of community members from Nelspoort, Western Cape, on the potential impacts (positive and negative) of fracking in the area.

Supported by Southern Cape Land Committee, the meeting was an opportunity to share, discuss and interrogate information currently being circulated, as well as ideas within the community of the benefits and disadvantages of fracking activities in the town. It was also an opportunity for communities to discuss the information that they need to better understand how fracking can impact on their lives and livelihoods.
