Get stuck in

Want to know more about Fracking and the threat it poses to your community, the UK and the planet? Want to get organised? Want to take action? You’ve come to the right place…

There are groups and individuals springing into action all over the country. It is important to remember that this is not just about stopping fracking. This is about creating a wave of change that can push back the powerful interests that are profiting from the current status quo. Your proximity to license areas, planning permissions and active sites may create the right conditions for urgent community action.
