Stop Barclays Fracking – 23 DEMO’s Tomorrow!!! Check For Details
And who owns Third Energy? Barclays Bank!!! While Third Energy’s business model is to ‘frack, frack, frack’, as an investor, Barclays has a few more options and is much more sensitive to bad PR. Spooking investors and taking away a key pillar of financial support would be devastating to the fracking industry already plagued with setbacks.
Despite thousands of objections and sustained local and national pressure, Third Energy have been given the green light to frack at Kirby Misperton, North Yorkshire. If they go ahead, it would be the first use of fracking in the UK for over 5 years. What happens in Yorkshire has implications for all of us.
Ryedale is a new fracking frontline in the UK and we all have a Barclays branch nearby. October 29th is an opportunity for everyone to act in solidarity with Ryedale, show Barclays that it cannot expect to get away with funding such a destructive industry.
