There are 4 Responses to Peak District under threat from fracking

19th August 2015

Any news on protests to prevent this? Really concerned and it was mentioned again in the local paper today. Please let us know and I can pass on the word and get down to the companies/sites where they plan as this needs direct action to stop them.

    Frack Free South Yorkshire will welcome the opportunity to talk about: –
    1. the fracking threat to the Sheffield City area (the whole of South Yorkshire will be licensed soon),
    2. the threat to the Peak District,
    3. our plans for raising awareness, educating and gaining support across the region,
    4. how we and the Green Party can work together to achieve this common aim – halting fracking.
