JOIN THE DEMO !
From 9am – 28th & 29th January – County Hall, PRESTON, PR1 8RL
This is when Lancashire County Council will be deciding on whether or not to approve two of the biggest fracking tests ever contemplated in the UK.
If allowed to happen, each site would have 4 horizontal wells, producing tens of millions of gallons and radioactive and toxic waste and opening the door to thousands more wells to be drilled across Lancashire, and the rest of the UK.
Radioactive Substance Permit granted –
Last week saw the UK Environment Agency granting fracking company Cuadrilla a Radioactive Substances Permit, allowing the company to produce and dump 5.6 million gallons of radioactive waste.
The permits are specific to planning applications that are being decided on the 28th Jan.
The decisions made on the 28th & 29th Jan will have implications for the entirety of the UK.
So on both days, concerned communities from around the UK will descend upon Lancashire County Hall in Preston for a peaceful show of solidarity and resistance.
This demo could showcase the strength and solidarity of the UK anti-fracking movement, by standing with the people of Lancashire.
If you live in the 60% of the UK that has been made available to fracking companies, this is also your chance to highlight the threat to your community…
…LETS MAKE THIS BIG!
Its time to STOP THEM BEFORE THEY START… Hope to See You There!
