Today on Your Call: How are communities responding to fracking around the globe?

  

On today's Your Call we’ll talk about the expansion of hydraulic fracturing with activists in Romania, Argentina, and Europe. Last month, activists from over 20 countries took to the streets to speak out against fracking. Where is it growing the fastest? Which companies are doing the fracking? And what can we learn from these grassroots movements?  Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Rose Aguilar and You.

Guests:

Josh Fox, activist and filmmaker of Gasland and Gasland Part II

Geert De Cock, policy officer with Food & Water Watch, Europe

Maria Olteanu, anti-fracking activist in Romania
