Cher has taken to Instagram to educate fans by encouraging them to sign a petition on Irish fracking.
The 72-year-old pop icon visited Ireland recently to play a gig at the 3 Arena.
Taking to social media, Cher posted a petition headed up by fellow Hollywood star, Mark Ruffalo.
The petition, which is addressed to Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, asked the Irish Government to remove Shannon LNG terminal from all future fracked gas infrastructure projects and was dated October 3rd.
Cher posted the photo with a link to a YouTube video on the topic, in a bid to encourage Irish people to stand up to the government against fracking.
The Believe singer acknowledged that Irish people might not like Hollywood stars getting “into their business”, but was doing so because she cares.
“I know the Irish people don’t need actors and singers from Hollywood getting into their business,” she wrote.
“But it’s because we care and we have had experience with the kind of people & companies who frack and sell the gas.”
The star shared a photo of herself at Dublin’s Merrion Square with the caption “Thanks Ireland, gotta go, you won’t have anymore Chernanigans for a little while.”
Aine O’Gorman from Friends of the Earth says they are thrilled to have Cher supporting their campaign.
“We are thrilled to have Cher adding her vocal support to our campaign to stop the Shannon LNG project from being approved in Ireland,” she said.
“We are happy to have her join the growing chorus of advocates who care about human rights and our environment in both Ireland and the US.”
