A new article authored by Kathleen Dean Moore is now out. Titled “Fracking Goes on Trial for Human Rights Violations,” it is Part 2 of Truthout’s eighteen part series on the Tribunal and explains Why This Tribunal Matters.
Truthout has just announced an eighteen part series of articles devoted to the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal on the Human Rights Impacts of Fracking.
Residents of other countries in which fracking occurs may wish to hold preliminary mini-tribunals on the human rights dimensions of fracking. Testimony and findings from those mini-tribunals can then be available to the plenary Tribunal hearings in 2017.
Fracking Goes on Trial.
A coalition of human rights lawyers and academics has been granted an opportunity to put fracking on trial at hearings to be held in the UK and the United States.
