Don't miss the Better Path Coalition's new webinar series, Better Path Presents.

 

The Coalition turned 2 on April 13, 2020 under circumstances we could not have imagined at our kickoff rally in 2018.

 

We decided to organize monthly webinars to help us stay connected, stay informed, figure out together how to be activists, advocates, and organizers who must work at a safe distance from each other and our targets, and make plans for how we can help shape the new normal.

 

Each webinar will include information about current actions and events and how you can participate.

Safety Before LNG

This episode was created by Colin Carney, Sophie Fitzpatrick and Cassie Roddy-Mullineaux, LLM students in the Human Rights Law Clinic at the Irish Centre for Human Rights. The episode investigates the anti-fracked gas movement in Ireland and on the international stage.

In this episode, Colin, Sophie and Cassie interview Johnny McElligott, a leading member of the North Kerry-based grassroots environmental campaigning group, Safety Before LNG. Johnny informs listeners about his work towards the prevention of the importation of fracked gas into Ireland and the construction of the planned LNG terminal on the Shannon Estuary.

The podcast also includes other voices from the anti-fracked gas movement including those of Brian Cuthbert and Jessie Dolliver, active members of Not Here Not Anywhere. They share their extensive knowledge of the science behind fracked gas and its impacts on human health and the environment. They also share their thoughts on Ireland’s future in terms of ‘energy security’ and the anti-fracked gas movement on a European level.

 

The students also speak to Tammy Murphy, Medical Advocacy Director for Physicians for Social Responsibility, Pennsylvania, who informs listeners about the harms that fracking inflicts on local communities in the US and explains why the issue is both transnational and urgent.
