Who is the Frackman?
February 25th, 2015
The Frackman is Dayne Pratzky, described on the film’s website as a ‘knockabout pig shooter’ and ‘an accidental activist’ who became involved in the anti-coal seam gas movement because of his personal experiences as a landholder on Queensland’s Darling Downs.
There’s nothing accidental about it – taking his lead from US film-maker Josh Fox, Pratzky has made it a personal mission to disrupt, protest and demonise an industry that he doesn’t agree with.
Along the way he’s hitched his wagon to Lock the Gate, and has been arrested on several occasions.
