With commercial-scale fracking sites such as Preston New Road in Lancashire potentially becoming operational soon, Reclaim the Power is teaming up with local campaigners across the country to discuss what strategies and tactics could be most effective to oppose these destructive industries.
We are organising a mobilisation tour with local groups across the UK to discuss:
– the latest plans from the fracking and coal industries to extract fossil fuels in the UK – what is direct action, and how can it be a powerful tactic to help communities achieve change – what we can learn from previous direct action campaigns against environmentally destructive campaign – what might direct action against the fossil fuel industry look like here in the UK – how we can coordinate our actions to stop these industries in their tracks
Tour dates: Monday 10 October: Leeds Victoria Hotel @ 7pm Address: 28 Great George St, LS1 3DL
Direct Action Gets the Goods Tuesday 11 – Wed 12 October: UK Shale Gas Summit, Manchester
