From FB event:
IMPORTANT – this event will be on SATURDAY 8TH OCTOBER from 10.00-17.00
as Sajid Javid, Secretary of State for Communities & Local Government, OVERRULED our local democratic assertion to stay frack free:
The residents and groups in Lancashire have met and asked that as many as who can – come to Preston New Road – Maple Farm forecourt (next to World of Water Blackpool. and one field from the proposed fracking site at PNR). Please come. If you can’t get here to show non-violent solidarity, then please if you can, with members of your group, your family or even just yourself – please post a photo or message of solidarity with the residents of Lancashire as they stand to defend our communities. If you could include: #DontFrackLancs #WeSaidNo – it will help us gather this all together for press releases and sense of support, many thanks ♥
What we will do on the day, at the event… will be absolutely non-violent but direct action in the sense that we will gather, not on the road but perhaps moving along the verges and if needed, crossing the road will be aided by Nana-Lollypop Ladies 😉 Our presence passes the landowner as well as the proposed site, it will ensure the local community knows they are not alone and that we WILL support them.
