Algeria cancels fracking plans until at least 2022, after fierce protests in the south of the country, for the first time ever targeting the hydrocarbons sector. Prime Minister Sallal was quoted saying “Between shale gas and water, the Algerian people will choose water”. The global rush on fracking still brings misery, but the fracking madness also stirs new groups of people into action, creating new spaces of resistance.
