Fracking has been perhaps the hottest environmental topic in South Africa in the last year – and for good reason.

While industry would have us see hydraulic fracturing as the cure to South Africa’s energy shortages, communities, environmentalists, and a range of experts have raised serious concerns.
 
So next month (actually just before Shell hosts a similar talk) Greenpeace Africa will be convening a discussion on the issue, and you’re invited to join us.
