Tonight I attended our monthly Frack Free Mansfield meeting and there was an awful lot to discuss.
I joined the group for two main reasons: my passion for protecting our environment and wildlife and the ever growing threat we face in our area from the chemicals giant INEOS.
Tonight we begun by discussing the letters we are writing to our new conservative MP. He’s going to have a bulging mail box. You can read my letter here.
The main threat in our district at the moment is in Warsop. We will fight every step of the way and there will be a public meeting in Warsop with INEOS in October as part of a tour they seem to be doing.
We will have a stall at the Warsop Carnival on 2nd July raising awareness and spreading the word.
In other areas in our county up the road near Thoresby and over in Creswell Seismic testing has already begun and active.
On our border at Harthill in Rotherham the trucks have already begun to set in.
It’s happening all around us and the fight to protect our environment could not be more vital.
We also need to target the land owners who are ever tempted by INEOS’ limitless cheque book.
Below is a leaflet that I have designed for our group which we are crowd funding to get printed.
If more people knew just what is at risk and the extent of the ever nearing threat, the protest against fracking will grow unbeatable.
