karoo_images It has been two years since members of the South African public have started to mobilise themselves against fracking. Despite Shell’s publicly stated assurances to shareholders and forecasted dates for when they would have their exploration licences, to date no shale gas applications have been approved in South Africa. The power of public pressure on industry and government accountability is increasing worldwide and leading to grassroots success stories. While licences are expected to be issued later in 2013, TKAG is prepared to and remains committed to legally oppose any activity that would advance shale gas mining under the current circumstances in South Africa. TKAG has recently engaged with Minister Shabangu in connection with the public participation process promised by the Minister. TKAG essentially enquired as to the nature and details of the public participation process and stressed that it is crucial that all South Africans be given an equal opportunity to meaningfully participate in a decision of the scope and scale of shale gas mining.
