Permanent People's Tribunal 

In May there is going to be an international tribunal about fracking and human rights.  This is of great concern in Australia, and at least one of the case studies will be from Australia.    Mercy International Association is a sponsor of the submissions pertaining to this case.    In the lead up to the tribunal there is a weekly lecture series  coming out of Oregon State University.   Please give this your close attention.  The links are as follows:
