Fracking skill share

Meeting and Skill Sharing for a Frack Free Weald
Join us in Horsham for a meeting and/or skill sessions for the South East anti-fracking groups and environmental activists.

Strong local communities have kept the UK free of fracking for five years and this is great chance to join the dots in our campaigns in the South East, whether it be unconventional or conventional oil/gas extraction, to share campaign ideas and to put a strategy in place for each of our areas and support each other with these.

Licenced areas across the South East/ Weald are Horse Hill, Billingshurst, Balcombe, Markwells Wood & Isle Wight, all at threat of unconventional drilling, with Leith Hill, Brockham, Bletchingley & Albury in Surrey, supposedly conventional. Regardless of what the industry are drilling for, all fossil fuels should be kept in the ground. 

Despite many promises by the industry that they will not be fracking, they are still using extreme extraction methods like acidisation and once the access to easy oil diminishes we know it will lead to fracking. We need to be strategising and combining our campaigning skills to make the public aware and stop this industry.

Please note you do not have to be an experienced campaigner to attend, if you would like to see how you can get more involved, this is it! 

The meeting will start at 10.30 sharp so please arrive at least 15 mins earlier. It will be for 2 hours then a break for lunch before the afternoon sessions.

**Skill Sessions/Workshops**
