J16 Upton

The government’s grand gesture of ‘closing coal’ is conditional on replacing it with gas. Fracking is a key part of that vision, but it’s meeting with resistance at every step.

Upton is the country’s longest standing community protection camp. It’s due to be evicted any day now so that test drilling for unconventional gas can start.

Lets put a red line around the UKs fracking front line. On January 16th, from 10am- 4pm. If the camp is still in situ we can help build an exciting new defence and show our solidarity with the community. If it’s been evicted and the drill is present there’ll be creative ways to get in the way. This will be a family friendly event with something for everyone.
