Event description

Description

Once again, the good folks of Greater Manchester will be going to support the campaign against fracking at Preston New Road in Lancashire. The trip is a part of the People's Assembly's Take Back Manchester eent. We will be taking the coach to Maple Farm on Preston New Road where there is a base for the campaign with loos, light refreshments and a place to sit. From there we will support the road side protest outside the fracking site, a 5 minute walk from Maple Farm.

There are two places where you can catch the coach. Manchester people can catch the coach from Chorlton Street in Central Manchester at 8:45. Bolton people can catch the coach from Chequerbent Roundabout, just off M61 Junction 5 BL5 3JD at 9.30 prompt. The coach will then head to Preston New Road. The coach will leave Preston New Road and return to Bolton and Manchester at 15:30. It's £10 for a normal ticket and £5 for concessions - though please consider paying full price if you are able as all proceeds go to Frack Free Greater Manchester. Bring your own packed lunch and if possible bring placards and wear yellow.

Fracking was banned by the local council in Lancashire after local people campaigned and won for their environment. The ban was later overturned by the Secretary of State Sajid Javid. Since then the local community has undertaken a further amazing campaign to resist fracking inluding daily roadside protests since January, legal action (still ongoing) and getting other companies involved to boycott the process. As people of Manchester we want to stand by our Lancastrian neighbours. Fracking anywhere puts the environment at risk for all of us.
