Knostrop Organisers Meeting with Frack Free Leeds
June 8, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Frack Free Leeds invite you to join us in campaigning to stop Knostrop, a waste water treatment works in Leeds, from accepting flowback fluid produced from shale exploration and hydraulic fracturing (aka fracking water).
North Yorks County Council have just given the go ahead for Third Energy to frack in Yorkshire despite the opposition of thousands of local residents, businesses and Ryedale District Council – and Third Energy will need somewhere to dispose of their fracked water. With Knostrop as 1 of only 4 places in the country with a permit to accept this stuff, if we can get them to refuse to accept it then fracking companies have said they would not be able to go through with the hydraulic fracturing activity…
We want you to come and share your ideas, outrage and skills to help shape the campaign to get Knostrop to say kNO!
We’ll feed you! Tasty veggie food will be available.
