Groundswell

Johnny Gogan

In 2011, Ireland became a frontline state as the oil and gas industry attempted to introduce the controversial practice known as Hydraulic Fracturing – or “fracking” – into Europe. A ten year groundswell campaign started in the border counties of Fermanagh and Leitrim – at the source of Ireland’s important River Shannon – to block exploration and to ban fracking in both parts of Ireland. With over forty contributions from campaigners, politicians and scientists on both sides of the Atlantic the film is above all a story about the power of a marginalised community to effect change on a local and global scale
