Anti-fracking campaign steps up in Lancashire

On 9 March hundreds of people marched through Manchester to protest against the plans for thousands of oil and gas wells throughout Lancashire. This is one of the largest anti-fracking protests held so far in Britain.

A recent survey by Manchester Evening News found 73% of people were against oil and gas fracking.

The march was lively and high spirited and culminated in a rally at Cathedral Gardens.

There were several speakers from the Barton Moss anti-fracking camp. One of them said that the way to stop the drilling at Barton Moss was mass civil disobedience.

He called for hundreds of people to turn up every day to stop the drilling trucks. The same speaker also criticised the unions for funding the Labour Party which is pro-fracking.

Cameron has promised a 'fracking revolution' in Britain that will see oil and gas fracking wells all over the country. We must stop him.
