Protests in UK
Early Saturday morning anti-fracking campaigners climbed 500 feet to hang two banners from the iconic Blackpool Tower raising awareness about the dangers of hydraulic fracturing for shale gas spreading to the UK. After successfully hanging the banners, the two climbers were sprayed with a pressure washer by Blackpool Tower workers while they were hundreds of feet above the ground. Both protesters were arrested when they descended.
“The UK fracking industry is in its infancy. We must act now if we are to stop it in its tracks. It’s bad for Lancashire, it’s bad for the UK and it’s bad for the planet.”
Blackpool Tower is five miles east of the first fracking test well in the UK. The group is highlighting the issue and launch of an anti-fracking campaign centred around the website frack-off.org
