Pull Up Fracking Before It Takes Root
Let’s get out on the streets, keep the Tories under the cosh and fossil fuels under ground this July!
Reclaim the Power have been organising to support communities in Lancashire resisting Cuadrilla and the Conservative Government’s attempts to frack their countryside for the past 6 years. Now with the company inching closer to production in the teeth of fierce opposition a month of Rolling Resistance has been called: https://reclaimthepower.org.uk/fracking/
The fracking industry has always leaned heavily on the national Tory government to override local objections and now with the new political landscape this support looks shaky and likely to be toppled by a well timed and powerful intervention. We are mobilising people to attend the mass demo on Friday 21 July and will be running a coach up to Blackpool from Bristol and Stroud for folks from the south west to get up north and help pull up the fracking industry before it takes root. The full invite for the day itself is at the bottom of this email.
BOOK YOUR PLACE NOW! To do this you need to buy a ticket through the crowdfunder page, and email us to reserve your seat.
We will leave Bristol on Thursday 20 July at 2pm in the afternoon and stay at the nearby Camp of New Hope overnight. You will need your camping gear! If for whatever reason you cannot camp please get in touch. There is a limited supply of more comfortable digs (beds, under a roof) available for those who need them. We’ll set off back to Bristol at 4pm on the Friday and expect to be back by 10pm.
We hope finances won’t stop anyone attending but need contributions to cover the cost of the coach hire. They are as follows:
Low income £12 each way / £24 return
Waged £15 each way / £30 return
Solidarity £20 each way / £40 return
If this is not possible for you then please get in touch directly and we’ll work something out.
