RE: [OPE] Istanbul Declaration Against the 5th World Water Forum 15-22

An additional issue and area of conflict is over natural gas drilling,
through a process called hydraulic fracturing or hydro-fracturing,
which threatens the water supply and public health in New York State
and across the US and other locations.
Will the current economic crisis put additional pressure on capital
to go ahead with such programs or will it mean that it will be put
on the back-burner? There are some very large corporations, including
Halliburton, which have invested in hydro-fracturing and stand to benefit
by increased drilling.
In solidarity, Jerry_______________________________________________
