  After three years of opposing shale gas mining in South Africa, we can say with certainty that 2014 will be a defining year for the fight against fracking. With various statements recently issued by government officials, including President Zuma, trumpeting the potential benefits of shale gas mining, it has become clear that the government is bullish about pushing ahead with their plans to issue shale gas licences. "We are extremely excited about the prospect, because as government we consider hydraulic fracturing for shale gas a 'game-change' opportunity for the Karoo region and for our economy at large," Zuma is quoted to have said. The government’s position is without doubt based on data and statements from the oil and gas industry, notably Royal Dutch Shell. With the opposition to fracking being stronger than ever, preparing for what would ultimately seem to be a showdown in court, South Africans need to stand up, speak out and become involved in this debate in order to partake in shaping their future. TKAG remains committed to ensuring that South Africans’ Constitutional rights to an environment that is not harmful to their health and well-being are upheld.
