PLEASE SUPPORT THIS URGENT LEGAL CHALLENGE TO GOVERNMENT FRACKING POLICY

On May 17th the government issued a Ministerial Statement that aims to centralise control of fracking planning policy and prevent councils from deciding how fracking is dealt with locally. Ryedale resident Paul Andrews is applying for a Judicial Review to get this Statement withdrawn and return regional planning policy decisions to local councillors. If you value local democracy and oppose fracking, please donate by clicking below. http://bit.ly/FrackingChallenge

Who should Feed the World?

This article in the Guardian on 5 June 2018, prompted by the proposed merger between Monsanto and Bayer, examines the power of multinationals over proprietary seeds, and fertilisers and pesticides for growing food. It it highlights an Indian community seedbank as an example of how it might be possible to preserve the huge amount of traditional varieties we may need in an uncertain future.
