Anti Fracking Protest In The UK

Photo | 4 September, 2013

Greenpeace activists set up a mock fracking rig at the entrance to Lancashire County Hall in Preston, Lancashire. The rig is surrounded by 8 foot high fence with the company logos of Cuadrilla and Frack&Go. A loud soundtrack of drills, trucks and industrial plant is playing as councillors enter the building. The Development Control Committee are meeting today to decide whether to grant permission for drilling in Lancashire. This is widely seen as the test case for whether fracking goes ahead nationally. 09/04/2013
