Lancashire County Council is set to decide this month whether fracking can take place in the county. Activities are planned on Tuesday 23 June to show public opposition to these plans.
Fracking for shale gas risks damaging Lancashire’s beautiful and wildlife-rich natural environment, it risks polluting our water, air, and soil, and brings disruption and health risks to our communities.
Lancashire’s local economy could be harmed by risking jobs in sectors such as farming and tourism, house prices have already been impacted, and there is no evidence it will reduce energy bills.
Public protest has halted fracking elsewhere in the country, and we can stop it here too.
You can download a flyer with more info about the action here: Don’t Frack Lancs

In addition, the Campaign Against Climate Change is organising a mass lobby of Parliament on Wednesday 17 June. There are details about this event here: http://www.campaigncc.org/masslobby
