DRILL BABY DRILL WILL PREMIERE IN ITALY AT CINEMAMBIENTE ON JUNE 4, 2013

For our Italian friends !

TRIVELLA BAMBINA TRIVELLA /Drill Baby Drill in competition in Torino !















TRIVELLA BAMBINA TRIVELLA

Quando la popolazione di un villaggio polacco al confine con l’Ucraina, un’area celebre per la sua bellezza naturale, scopre che la Chevron, una delle più grandi multinazionali energetiche, ha intenzione di iniziare delle trivellazioni sul territorio tramite l’uso della fratturazione idraulica, non è inizialmente contraria all’idea. Lo diventerà quando scoprirà i pesanti danni non solo ambientali connessi con questa tecnica estrattiva, prima di iniziare così una vera e propria battaglia contro l’azienda. Una vicenda molto simile a quella vissuta dalla comunità di un’area della Pennsylvania chiamata l’Arabia Saudita degli Stati Uniti per la ricchezza dei suoi giacimenti petroliferi.

On Saturday June 1 in Couvet, Switzerland they will show DRILL BABY DRILL / LA MALEDICTION DU GAZ DE SCHISTE at the Cinema Colisée at 16h30 as part as a debate

 PROJET DE FORAGE À NOIRAIGUE : QUELS RISQUES ?


 Notre eau potable menacée... La compagnie Celtique Energie prévoit un forage pour chercher et exploiter des hydrocarbures situés dans le sous-sol de Noiraigue. Or, c’est dans cette région qu’est captée l’eau potable qui approvisionne 70% de la population du canton de Neuchâtel, en particulier des villes de Neuchâtel et de La Chaux-de-Fonds. Quels sont les enjeux liés à ce projet de forage? Quels sont les risques pour les ressources en eau potable? Qui se cache derrière Celtique Energie? Quel type de forage est prévu? Est-il question de gaz de schiste?

 Afin de répondre à ces questions et dans le but d’informer la population, les Verts vous invitent à une table ronde publique, avec la participation de:
- Pierre-Olivier Aragno, hydrogéologue, délégué à l’environnement, à la mobilité et au développement durable de la Ville de Neuchâtel
 - Roland Stettler, ancien chimiste des eaux et délégué à l’environnement de la Ville de Neuchâtel
 - Bertrand Valton, expert du milieu souterrain, Fédération Française de Spéléologie
 - Christine Monnet, membre du Collectif du Haut-Bugey (FR) 'Non aux forages d’hydrocarbures'
 -Anne Mahrer, députée verte au Grand Conseil genevois
 - Sergio Santiago, géologue, conseiller général vert à Val-de-Travers
 - Fabien Fivaz, député vert au Grand Conseil neuchâtelois
 - Modératrice: Clarence Chollet, coprésidente des Verts neuchâtelois

On May 15, 2013 Chevron tried to start work in Ministrówce Miączyn district in the municipality of Zamosc. Heavy trucks with equipment entered on a road limited to 5 tons. Drivers do not have the required permits to drive on road. Local residents did not allow the work to start and blocked access to the area leased by Chevron. They called the police from the police station in the town of Miączynie. After 10 hours of conflict the Mayor has not taken any action or decision to resolve this crisis. Representatives of Chevron asked by residents to provide important decision concession authorizing the commencement of work but they did not provide the documents.
