Yesterday, another antifracking rally took place in Curtici, a small agricultural town in Western Romania, at the border with Hungary. A debate about the dangers of fracking was held at the town hall, in the big room. The audience was so large, that not even the half of the attendandts could fit in the room, despite its vastness. The remaining participants stood outside, in the cold, to listen to the antifracking speeches. In total, 1200 people participated, out of a population of 8000.
The big mobilisation in Curtici was also due to the owner of one of the most successful large scale farmers in Romania, Dimitrie Musca, owner at CAI Curtici and to the priest and the mayors in the surrounding municipalities. It seems that a big stronghold against fracking is about to be built in this part of Romania too.
