The anti-fracking campaign is continues to gain momentum after the succesful Camp Frack back in September (see SchNEWS 788), and recent earthquakes in Lancashire caused by Cuadrilla’s shale gas extraction (see SchNEWS 793).
The next action planned is on Wednesday 2nd November; chosen to coincide with the national Shale Gas Environmental Summit. Pegged as ‘a blatant piece of greenwash designed purely to attract investors’ by demonstration organisers Frack Off, the conference is sponsored by a host of organisations, all with (in)vested interests in seeing the fracking industry blow up in the UK (as opposed to just blowing up the UK).
People wishing to join the demo should meet at Copthorne Tara Hotel, the conference venue, at 3pm. Bring yer protest staples of gas masks, green face paint and anything that makes a loud noise.
