Ellesmere Port update…

Yesterday saw a fantastic response to our plea for solidarity, both from the community in Ellesmere Port and beyond.

Peaceful protests were held outside the site from 10am onwards, and a separate group of community members ventured into the town centre for an awareness raising rally in the middle of the afternoon.

After dark, there was a shift change. Protestors walked slowly in front of a van exiting the site to show their opposition and resistance to the fracking industry.

Frack Free Ellesmere Port would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came along, including the Anti-fracking Nanas, and people from the Wirral and Liverpool. We’ll be holding a similar event next Saturday (22nd November) so please come along and show your support! Together we stand united.
