HAWAF to be Launched with Screening of Groundswell Rising
Haxby and Wiggington Against Fracking (HAWAF) will be lauched on 3 February with a screening of Groundswell Rising, a documentary about the effect of fracking in the USA and the anti-fracking campaign there. The screening will take place in Haxby and Wiggington Methodist Church (YO32 2JH). Doors open at 7pm and the screening begins at 7.30pm. After the film there will be a questions and answers session with Tim Thornton a doctor from Ryedale who is concerned at the risks that gas development presents to health.
HAWAF is being established in response to the threat that fracking and unconventional gas development presents to Haxby, Wiggington and the surrounding area. They plan to start a locally based campaign against this destructive industry. You can visit their facebook page here.
