Next Steps from the Peoples' Climate March - Global Frackdown Day

Monica Lambton, JPIC coordinator

The real test of success for the People's Climate March (New York City on September 21) will be on the concrete follow-up for change. Our first opportunity was the Global Frackdown Day. At our meeting this summer, the Congregation of Notre Dame Social Justice Network made the decision to endorse the International Frackdown Day which took place on October 11, 2014. We have been invited to take action by praying or doing advocacy.

Fracking is a key contributor to Canada's Greenhouse Gas emissions. We have had success in protecting land from fracking operations - the moratorium in PEI, Nova Scotia and Quebec and the new Government of New Brunswick's promises - but there is still much work to do in Canada, particularly in the west and the north where fracking is rampant. Since October 11 falls on our Thanksgiving weekend, we are invited to choose another day to do action, if necessary.
