Keeping it in the Ground Mobiliser Tour

February 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

With a commercial-scale fracking site at Preston New Road in Lancashire starting to be constructed, Reclaim the Power is teaming up with local campaigners to discuss what strategies and tactics could be most effective to oppose this destructive industry.

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 projects such as the Franklin River Dam campaign, and Bentley Blockade against fracking in Australia

what might direct action against the fossil fuel industry look like here in the UK

how we can coordinate our actions to stop these dirty industries in their tracks

plans you can join in to take down the fracking industry in 2017

Event starts at 7pm but all are welcome from 6pm for local networking.
