Queens Speech for Fracking

This morning, just before the Queen’s Speech, Greenpeace activists arrived at David Cameron’s very own home and set up a fracking site.

It’s already making news websites and getting the attention of MPs – but it’s voters they listen to most.  So sign to add your voice:

The fracking industry’s plans are on shaky ground. Just last week, Cuadrilla boss Francis Egan claimed that if firms like his aren’t allowed to drill under our homes without permission, fracking in the UK could grind to a halt [1].

I still can’t believe David Cameron is so happy to auction off Britain to the fossil fuel industry.  But I know that when hundreds of thousands of us come together, politicians can only turn away for so long. From protecting forests, to defending the Arctic and our oceans, we’re strong when we work together!
