A short post this time, but Derby Climate Coalition recently took part in a demonstration against INEOS in Chesterfield, showing opposition to fracking by the company.
At a meeting, INEOS are reported to have said that they “will choose and pay for the company who will monitor them”. The audience is reported to have been very skeptical about this.
The above shows David Burley, a campaigner from South Yorkshire, speaking at an anti-fracking meeting last Wednesday in Amber Valley to about 50 people in Alfreton.
This part of Derbyshire is ‘pitted’ with small ex-coal mining towns. The meeting was supported by Derby Climate Coalition, Unite the Community and Amber Valley 38 Degrees. The talk was excellent, as was the discussion. The next meeting will take place at 7pm on the 30th March. The venue is to be confirmed.
The campaigners are organising a petition: please sign here https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/stop-fracking-in-amber-valley
