FreshWater Accountability Project Submits Testimony to Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal on Human Rights

In the face of the many Human Rights abuses by the fracking industry, the FreshWater Accountability Project collected testimony from impacted individuals. Through their legal representation, Megan Hunter of Hunter & Hunter LLC, FreshWater filed an Amicus Brief to support the efforts of the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal to bring the industry to answer for the human rights abuses they have perpetuated upon the people through lobbying to dismantle protective regulations, coercing and lying to landowners to sign for easements and leases, using eminent domain for pipelines that are not justified for public good, and promoting the fracking industry with all the associated toxic and radioactive pollutants and Greenhouse Gas emissions it produces. The Amicus Brief filed by FreshWater and Hunter Firm can be found here.
