'Living in pollution pollution free world is a basic human right.’
“You are probably aware that this year the International Permanent People’s Tribunal on Human Rights is addressing the impacts of unconventional gas and fracking on human rights.
A number of countries are holding national tribunals which will feed into the international process. You may already be involved in your country’s tribunal. The Australian chapter has been collecting testimony and evidence, which you can view here: www.peoplestribunalongas.org/session-one/
This includes video testimonies from NTN members, Dr Geralyn McCarron, a medical practitioner from Queensland and Dr Mariann Lloyd-Smith.
Geralyn’s testimony is excellent and includes a copy of her paper recently published in the International Journal of Environmental Studies (Air ‘Pollution and human health hazards: a compilation of air toxins acknowledged by the gas industry in Queensland’s Darling Downs’)
If you are not already involved in the tribunal or your national chapter but are concerned about the impacts of unconventional gas we encourage you to make comment. It can either be in the form of a video, a written document or even an old submission that makes your important points. However short or long, please take action and remember that we all have the right to healthy and safe environment and that 'living in pollution pollution free world is a basic human right.’”
The human health subcase will examine the health impacts of fracking, both acute and chronic, especially for vulnerable groups – due to exposures to endocrine disruptors, known and probable carcinogens, radon gas, neuro- and developmental toxicants, ozone, and noise.
