The full programme from June 2018 is now available here.
Time and again, local communities have shown the fossil fuel industry it has no social licence to frack in the UK. But Westminster won’t listen and, the government are continuing their plan to force this dirty drilling on communities. Over the next three months, Lancashire anti-fracking groups are organising a United Resistance of Love and Defiance to counter Cuadrilla’s dangerous fracking plans at Preston New Road.
Jig at the Rig – March 2018
The Rolling Resistance in July 2017
Throughout July, hundreds of people from across the country joined the frontline resistance to fracking at Preston New Road in Lancashire. Every working day, affinity groups blockaded the gates to Cuadrilla’s frack pad with their bodies, climbed on top of the fracking trucks carrying equipment or took action along other parts of the supply chain. Mass demonstrations on Fridays saw around 200 people attend the gates each week including faith groups, trade unions, farmers, foodgrowers, families and more. Together with local communities, we delayed Cuadrilla’s operations and sent a message to investors that this industry has no social licence to operate. Reclaim the Power are supporting affinity groups through the legal process: around 100 people face charges for taking action.
