During her passionate speech at the Paris International Rights of Nature Tribunal, Shannon Biggs, Executive Director of Movement Rights and co-founder of the Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature, explains how fracking is a global issue and one of the worst threats of life on Earth. In the U.S. fracking sets stage for disaster with over 1 million active fracked oil and gas lines. She states that fracking is a clear violation of Rights of Nature as it violates the rights of water, air and climate, soil and life. Moreover, it causes earthquakes and contributes to climate change, cancer and asthma as it uses and brings to the Earth’s surface radioactive materials that cannot be safely disposed. In the end, Casey Camp-Horinek, Indigenous rights activist who helps maintain the cultural identity of the Ponca Nation of Oklahoma, in an emotional speech described how fracking has major impacts in the lives of tribes located in Oklahoma.
