Friends of the Earth France, with the support of FoE Europe and Milieudefensie, has produced a documentary, called Fracking Patagonia. It will be launched on May 13th in Paris, and the English and Spanish version will soon be ready.


The documentary shows the social and environmental impacts of companies such as Total, Chevron and Apache in Patagonia with examples of landgrabbing, violations of the right to free prior and informed consent of indigenous communities, environmental impacts of wells in a protected area, etc. A part of the documentary has also been filmed in France, focusing on the current debates around shale gas exploitation in our country, and the situation three years after the start of the resistance here.
