Here's a Facebook page with images from the Global Frackdown.

Egypt is a new target, according to Desmoblog.

...shale gas industry wildcatters see the country as a new possible home for fracking, as covered in a Sept. 19 blog post published by the Egyptian Initiative on Personal Rights (EIPR). Royal Dutch Shell and Apache have expressed interest in extracting Egypt's shale deposits.

“Fracking threatens Egypt's drinking water, but Shell and Apache's drilling is mired in secrecy. Egyptians have a right to know how their resources are managed and how that impacts their environment and life," said Reem Labib, Environmental Justice Researcher at EIPR.

I will check the Global Frackdown site later on and see how it went.
That movie looks interesting - I will check out that website about the documentary.

A new movie has come out. I haven't seen it, but the trailer's interesting.

The Global Frackdown site doesn't yet say how it went.
