May 20, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1080680268658832/
On May 20th North Yorkshire Council will decide whether fracking should go ahead in Ryedale.
Join community leaders, residents and high profile speakers outside North Yorkshire County Council, Northallerton for a day of peaceful, community-led activities standing with people in Ryedale and North Yorkshire against fracking.
The rally is part of a weekend of action celebrating 5 years of no fracking in Britain, with people across the country calling on the Government to not force fracking on any community.
North Yorkshire County Hall (two minutes walk from Northallerton train station)
Thousands of people in Ryedale have objected to fracking, and the local district council has said no. As the environmental and health risks of fracking become clearer, the case for it is falling apart.
If we stand together we can stop fracking being forced on any community – join us at Northallerton and keep the UK free from fracking.
Activities for 20 May:
9:00 – Assemble outside the Council to present objections and petitions to Councillors as they enter County Hall
10:00 – 13:00 – Rally against fracking outside North Yorkshire County Hall and during the breaks in proceedings, hear from local and national speakers.
During the day – Listen to the proceedings live, and join in with activities, entertainment, music and refreshments throughout the day while we wait for the decision.
