what they need to mend the damage, recover or even enhance the quality of life, empower them to fight for better life.

2.POLIcY

There should be a better regulations for natural resources mining that can protects the citizen and controls the Industry exploitation or complete moratorium of drilling

3. ENvIRONMENT

to find alternate, to restore the damaged ecosystem, poisoned lands, water, contaminated air

4. SYSTEM/STRUcTURAL

is it possible that the reason for fracking is that there arent any environment disaster worst than loosing global power of economy & politic?
