Wednesday, August 17, 2016


One man was shot by the military when thousands of locals from towns across the south of Colombia took to the streets on Monday claiming that fracking activities by foreign and local companies are damaging their livelihoods.

Protests were reported in El Doncello, El Paujil, Morelia and Valparaiso where thousands of locals reportedly took to the streets to demand action that would protect their lands from the effects of fracking.
