ALL We Want For Christmas Is No Fracking In Upton

December 19, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

We will meet at 10am outside the Post Office at Long Lane, we will then gather on the grass island opposite the Post Office at the junction of the lights with Long Lane and Caughall Road. We will remain there, highly visible to passing traffic, until approximately 11.30am.

Please bring placards, banners, warm/waterproof clothing, drinks and snacks. ALSO bring santa hats, tinsel, Christmas placards, musical instruments, fancy dress (for the brave!) and anything else with a Christmas theme.

Please note that as this is a busy main road, this peaceful protest will not be suitable for young children.

At 11.30am, we will walk to Upton Community Protection Camp, anybody who wishes to join us will be very welcome. We will walk along Long Lane, turning into Duttons Lane and up to the camp. Please join us for mince pies and Christmas carols at the camp.

IGas have NO SOCIAL LICENCE to drill in Upton. Over 2,800 residents have been surveyed and 85% do not want unconventional gas exploration or extraction in Upton.
