Let’s get out on the streets and 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 few 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 is at the bottom of this email.
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.
