Anti-fracking lobby announces new legal campaign to fight government over shale gas mining Press Release by Treasure Karoo Action Group, July 31, 2012
“We have been preparing for the moratorium to be lifted for a long time,” said Deal. “Now in the run up to the decision by government we are refocusing our efforts to present a high powered, well prepared legal campaign which we believe will halt the minster in her tracks. “For this we have selected the best legal minds that we can get to assist us to take this matter to the constitutional court if needs be.” … “We are not deterred by the fact that a number of people may have been influenced by Shell’s relentless pro fracking propaganda regarding the size of the gas deposit to the number of jobs that could be created.” said Deal. “We also know that Shell has been less than open with the truth about the irreversible damage to the environment that fracking causes and the figures surrounding jobs.” … Our message to government is; “if you rule in favour of fracking, under the current circumstances, prepare for a long and costly legal battle as the people who will be most affected fight back”.
