Fracking Update

Hull and East Yorkshire Frack Off have organised some more Fracking Information Evenings:

  • Ottringham Village Hall – Mon 9th June 2014, 7.30 pm
  • Beverley Toll Gavel Church – Tues 10th June 2014, 7.30 pm
  • Skirlaugh, Gardeners Country Inn – Wed 11th June 2014, 7.30 pm
  • Hull, Boom Bar, Prospect Street – Thurs 12th June 2014, 7.30 pm

The events will present evidence of the impacts of extreme fossil fuel extraction in other countries. They will deal with our regional water system and a bit of chemistry, and why, if Rathlin say they aren’t fracking, we should be concerned right now.

Donations: If you wish to support the local anti-fracking campaign with a donation, it is now possible to donate money via a the HEYFO website  The donate button is on the right-hand side of the home page (scroll right if you can’t see it)
