On Saturday, October 19, the global anti-fracking movement will come together to call for a ban on fracking with one unified voice. You can plug in to an action near you, or plan your own with the resources below.
Frackdown actions can be anything from a public rally, to a home screening of Gasland, and anything in between. One simple action idea is to meet up with your friends and collect signatures against fracking in your community. The specific action is up to you — the important thing is that you get out in your community and join thousands of others across the globe in taking action against fracking on 10/19.
