Frack Off Romania

This site is dedicated to the plight of Pungeşti, a village in an area of Romania licenced for shale gas development., Early in the morning of Monday 2 December, Chevron sent in hundreds of riot police to forcibly remove locals at a camp set up to protest against Chevron’s activities, resulting in the brutal arrest and hospitilisation of many innocent civilians. Since then, the entire village has been under siege with severe human rights abuses, including restrictions on the freedom of movement.
