On Friday, February 9, there will be an informative event against Fracking in Cehegín (31/01/2018)

As reported by the City of Cehegín, the platform "Cuenca del Segura Libre de Fracking", has organized an information event in the municipality, which will take place next Friday, February 9, at 19:00, in the House of Culture.

In it, the interveners, that is, Juan Luis Amor, ecological farmer and rancher;

María Cano, member of the Platform;

as well as Francisco Turrión, Hydrogeologist, will make a talk explaining the risks of Fracking.

The plenary session of the Cehegín City Council unanimously approved last Thursday, January 25, a motion promoted by the "Basin Platform of the Free Fracking Segura" in which the act was agreed upon, the Regional Government was urged to "not grant new permits in the matter of hydraulic fracture and use existing legal instruments to achieve a suspension to those granted, "also to the Congress of Deputies" to process the law presented in the national parliament for the total prohibition of this technique in our country "And finally, the corporation also reaffirmed" against fracking, and promised to create a working group, with members of the Corporation, and in which the Platform Cuenca del Segura Libre de Fracking, technicians and how many people have a place of the different social environments to work as a team, in a coordinated manner with the other towns of the Northwest region ".

We recall that fracking or hydraulic fracturing is a technique of non-conventional gas extraction in areas where traditional techniques are not viable and, as explained by the Local Development Councilor, Francisco Chico, who works from the City Council in this act, "The Plenary Session of the City Council of Cehegín, on July 31, 2015, declared our municipality" Free of Fracking ", since the practice of this technique entails serious environmental and socioeconomic risks, which we consider unattainable for our municipality."

"This question, the councilor has continued, is unfortunately a declaration of intentions, because the City Council is not the competent body in this matter, even so from the Consistory we will take all the measures within our reach to avoid the use of this dangerous technique. "

Finally, the mayor has made "an appeal to the residents of Cehegín to attend the event, given that the social mobilization on this important issue for the environmental and socioeconomic future of our region, is essential."
