Fracked Future Carnival

19 March, central London

On 19 March, the CEOs of IGas, Cuadrilla and various government officials are attending the Shale Gas Forum to plot new ways to bring fracking to the UK. Meet outside Knightsbridge station in London at 12:30 and help tell them that we won’t accept their plans. On the day there’ll be speeches from our friends at 1 Million Climate Jobs, Fuel Poverty Action, and Residents Action on Fylde Fracking. We’re also pleased to hear that Vivienne Westwood and Josie Long are planning to attend and say a few words too.
