sheffieldwelcomesrefugeesThere are two important demonstations in Sheffield this Saturday. SYMAAG have organised a “Sheffield Welcomes Refugees” march and rally. Speakers include Shami Chakrabati from Liberty,  refugees who have been welcomed to Sheffield, eyewitness accounts of refugee camps and Graham Wroe for the Green Party.

Just across the road from the Town Hall from 12 to 2pm Sheffield Friends of the Earth are organising an anti fracking demonstration outside Barclays Bank. Barclays Bank owns 97% of Third Energy – a company planning to frack across Ryedale, North Yorkshire. They plan 19 wells, including some very close to the beautiful North York Moors National Park.
