Manchester Greenpeace are hosting an event on Sat 20th April. This below is taken from their facebook.
Saturday, 20 April 13:00 until 15:00 in UTC+01
Thanks to mishap after mishap, Oil companies intent on scouring the Arctic circle for resources have called-off drilling for another year. The Arctic Council (consisting of Russia, USA, Canada, Sweden, Denmark/Greenland, Norway, Finland & Iceland – which the UK is “Observer” to) meets on the 15th of May 2013, to discuss all matters regarding this geographical region. This has given us all a golden moment of opportunity to take action, and ensure that robust measures are taken by the Council to prevent any oil rigs returning ever again to plunder this pristine and fragile environment! With Greenland already refusing to hand out any more permits for off-shore drilling, the only way is forward!
Come down on down to the Central Methodist Hall on Oldham Street for an action-packed afternoon of information, guest speakers and workshops!
See you all there!
This event will be hosted by Manchester Greenpeace.
