Say No to Fracking in Lancashire on 25 February
A day of action has been called on 25 February by the Lancashire Nanas and Residents Action on Fylde Fracking (RAFF). Frack Free York will be joining them for the day at their rally at Preston New Road, where Cuadrilla are preparing to drill and frack. We need to join them to show solidarity with a community in the front line of the fight against fracking and to show that fracking is not acceptable in Lancashire, in Yorkshire, or anywhere else.
Both the people of Lancashire and Lancashire County Council said no to fracking, but Communities Secretary Sajid Javid paid no heed to their wishes and overturned the decision of the County Council following an inquiry. The right to have planning decisions made locally by elected councillors is at stake, as well as the local and global environment.
Frack Free York are providing a coach to the rally. Tickets are available at the bargain price of £7.50 on the day, but please register in advance at eventbrite. The coach departs Fawcett Street at 8am.
