The Global Frackdown is not one centralized event, but rather a day of action across the world where people are encouraged to take action in their own communities to ban fracking. Never planned an event before? Check out our action guide for event ideas and planning tips.
Events may include:
- Human signs spelling out “Ban Fracking” targeting decision-makers
- Protests or street theater outside oil or gas company headquarters or elected officials’ offices
- Frackdown mock wrestling event where community members take on oil/gas executives and/or elected officials
- Erect and take down fake drilling rig in park or public square and put up wind turbine
- Film screenings of Gasland or Split Estate
- Petition gathering actions
- Visibility events at key intersections with signs
- Assemblies/pot lucks about fracking with community members
The important thing is to get the message out about fracking, engage people in your community, and have fun doing it. Here are some resources to help you:
Download the Ban Fracking petition to gather signatures and demonstrate to local elected officials that your community opposes fracking.
