Dear Marc

For over three years local residents have been working hard to oppose fracking plans in Lancashire and we’ve been with them every step of the way.

Last week we asked Lancashire residents why they are so passionate about keeping Lancashire frack free. See what they have to say in our one-minute film.

Hearing Pat, John and Mavis talk about their fears makes the harsh reality of fracking all the more tangible. With Government plans to license up to two thirds of the UK for fracking many more of us could soon be facing this scenario.

The people of Lancashire have good reason to oppose fracking – it’s a risky technique that threatens our water supply, our health and our natural environment. And it produces yet more dirty fossil fuels that cause climate change.

In two weeks Lancashire council will decide on two fracking applications. If approved, these would be the UK’s first multiple-well fracking sites. Approval in Lancashire would set a precedent for the rest of the UK. Making it more likely for other applications to get the green light.

So whether you’re from Lancashire, live nearby or at the other end of the country we all have a stake in this decision.

We have two weeks. Please watch and share this powerful video and help us Keep Lancashire Frack Free.

With thanks and hope,

Nikki, Helen, Rachel, Tony, Donna, Jamie, Jake, Jane, Rose and Teresa
