“The fight against fracking in Greater Manchester is an important battle in the war against CO2 emitting fossil fuels and it is hotting up. A camp has been established near the site where Igas are planning to drill an exploratory well. It is at a layby just north of Barton Moss Secure Care Unit, Barton Moss Rd, Eccles, Manchester M30 7RL (this is near Junction 11 of M60, right turn off Liverpool Rd on way to Irlam, signposted for heliport.)”
There are already at least three campers there, more expected shortly. They need:
and any of following if you can:
extra duvets or sleeping bags
hot home cooked food and any other food including cake
foam for lining tents
old truck tyres
wood for fire
plastic garden chair
placards with suitable slogans
Also there’s a meeting of the campaign against fracking at Barton Moss :
next Thursday, 21st November, 7-9pm
at Friends Meeting House, Eccles
13 The Polygon
Please come along for an update on Igas’s plans, the campaign (eg two local meetings will have been held by then) and to get involved if you can.
