A CALL TO ARMS
My dear friends and fellow South Africans,
An oft-quoted adage reminds us that evil prospers when good men do nothing.
This is a simple appeal for your help and commitment to be involved in opposing the rapid and ill-considered
approval of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in this country.
Since January this year, TREASURE KAROO ACTION GROUP (TKAG) has developed into the foremost opposition to the
plans of Shell and others to frack South Africa. We have achieved an enviable media profile on the back of a selfless
volunteer effort. My personal contribution has been some R400 000 of my retirement funds and a seven-day a week
commitment that has seen significant impacts on personal and business life.
I have done it willingly, and I will continue to do so.
WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW.
Please create a recurring payment to TKAG on your internet banking profile for any amount that you think fit. No
amount is too small – even R100 per month. All donations will make a big difference. The answer is in continued
support, so please choose a number that you can maintain without even thinking about it.
I am going to ask you to send this on to your friends and associates or take it to your workplace. This is not just a
Karoo problem – fracking will spread across the country – and the costs to this country in areas such as, water,
health, roads, tourism, and agriculture will affect every South African.
THE ACCOUNT IS CONTROLLED BY A CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT AND YOU MAY REQUEST A BANK STATEMENT BY
EMAIL AT ANY TIME.
