Corporations & Democracy: Community Rights and Fracking Ban
The Community Rights Network of Mendocino County has drafted a community-rights based ordinance asserting the County's right to ban fracking-related activities and has recently begun collecting signatures to put the ordinance on the ballot in November. To learn more about the group and the ordinance, Toni Rizzo and Tom Wodetzki interviewed Shannon Biggs, Director of the Community Rights program at Global Exchange, who has been working with the Mendocino group on the ordinance. Shannon was joined by Community Rights Network of Mendocino County members, Meg Courtney, Vice Mayor of Fort Bragg, and Carrie Durkee, community rights activist, who discussed community rights issues and the local ordinance.
