On Wednesday, we visited Preston New Road in Lancashire to oppose fracking and show solidarity with the local struggle against it. The visit was also a further opportunity to raise awareness of the ‘One Million Climate Jobs’ campaign with its positive alternatives to fracking.
We visited on a day when they believe part of the drill arrived. While we were there, it was also visited by Young Friends of the Earth campaigners from across Europe.
It’s expected that fracking will take place at the site off Preston New Road within the next few weeks and months. It has been the scene of daily protests since the beginning of construction work in early January. You can read about protests on Tina Rothery’s blog http://tinalouiseuk.blogspot.co.uk/
