Frack Free Activists visit Weston-super-Mare
This Saturday (29th October) a bunch of hardy activists visited the popular seaside town of Weston-super-Mare in North Somerset in order to raise awareness of the threat to this area from the Fracksters of SW Energy.
Under the UK Governments 14th Round of Onshore Oil and Gas Licences issued last year the coastline of North Somerset has become the unfortunate recipient of 7 PEDLs.
This could lead to the devastation of the local environment if Fracking or Underground Coal Gasification is allowed to go ahead. At Frack Free Somerset we have learnt that the best safeguards for environment and communities are the awareness and organisation of local people.
So, to further the cause, a group of our activists turned up with banners, high vis and a beautifully crafted (fake!) fracking rig.
