Manchester coach to Climate Jobs, Renewables and Divestment bloc at Preston New Road
Against the wishes of local communities, the Conservative government has forced through fracking applications across England in an attempt to create a new ‘dash for gas’. At the same time as offering sweeteners to the fracking industry, the Tories have also removed support for renewable energy. The UK could be creating over one million climate jobs in clean energy, insulation and sustainable transport if we took money out of the bad and into the good.
Join trade unionists, renewable energy practitioners and divestment campaigners for a day of protest action outside the gates of Cuadrilla’s flagship fracking site at Preston New Road, Lancashire. If we get 100 people to the gates, the police usually shut the frack site down for the day. More info here.
The coach will pick up at 9 a.m. — Salford/Central Manchester locations TBC — and will be returning from Lancashire at 3.30 p.m.
We are charging a small fare to help cover the cost of the coach. Coach tickets are £5.90 via Eventbrite.
Current coach arrangements are not wheelchair accessible, please get in touch if you want to come and have access needs, we will do our best to support everyone getting there.
