Come and hear directly from US rancher John Fenton, as he talks about how fracking for unconventional gas polluted water and ruined lives in his local region in Pavillion, Wyoming.
He'll have the latest on new research released just last week by Stanford University which has confirmed that oil and gas activities have contaminated water in the area, and which has exposed a 10 year cover-up by the authorities.
‘Once you have fracking move in on agricultural land, it’s never the same’ John Fenton, 2014.
The event will also feature special guest Helen Bender, who lost her father after a long running battle against unconventional gas on his farm on the Western Downs of QLD. In the Territory we have the opportunity to learn from experiences of others and stand up for our water and communities.
Hear powerful speeches, enjoy a BBQ picnic and ask questions of our guests. Stick around for a short film screening under the stars after the event.
