Rathlin Energy has permission to start work on Mon 3 Dec 2018 at the West Newton site in East Yorkshire, despite opposition by parish councils at Withernwick and Ellerby and more than a 100 objectors.
More details in the following article from Drillordrop.
Anyone opposed to the development of this site who is not already active in the campaign against it might like to subscribe to the Frack Free East Yorkshire newsletter at http://www.frackfreeeastyorkshire.com/newsletter/
There are plans by Biofuelwatch for a peaceful protest in Goole to oppose Drax Power Station’s application to build the U.K’s largest-ever gas power plant. At a time when we need to reduce use of fossil fuel, it makes no sense environmentally to be building a new gas power station.
There will be another showing of the film ‘Tomorrow’ in Hull, arranged by Ground and Transition & Permaculture Hull, taking place at Ground on Tue 20 November 2018 at 7.30 pm. At the showing T&PH organised in September, a lot of people were impressed with the film, so the November showing is a chance for you to see the film if you missed it in September, or to see it again. The event is free.
Regarded as an optimistic film, ‘Tomorrow‘ identifies initiatives that have proven themselves valuable in ten different countries around the world. These concrete solutions to environmental and social challenges of the twenty-first century include examples from agriculture, energy, economy, education and governance. Entry is FREE and the film will be followed by a discussion and refreshments
The November meeting of Transition & Permaculture Hull will take place as follows:

Earth First! Film Club presents BRAND III
Wed 14 Nov, 7.00pm, Ground, 60 Beverley Road, Hull HU3 1YE
Bring food to share if you can.
The idea of the EF!film club is to have regular gatherings to get inspired by those acting against climate change, ecocide, speciesism, and to chat late into the night and work out how to save the world. The next screening will be on the 20th November and will be a showing of Tomorrow, a really positive and inspiring documentary about the steps people all over the world are taking to combat climate change.
