#FrackStopsHere

A new campaign has begun to invite Lancashire County Council, the North West Energy Task Force and Cuadrilla to join the Global Divestment movement to transfer from dirty industry and fossil fuels to clean, green renewable energy

The campaign is launched in the build-up to THE FRACK STOPS HERE in Lancashire June 23rd – June 26th 2015

The campaign petition reads:

“We, the people of Lancashire, request Cuadrilla withdraw their applications to frack anywhere on The Fylde, in Lancashire and the wider Northern region, as fracking has no social license and the fracking industry promised the people of Britain that they would not operate without a social license

The scientific case says NO Fracking, the financial case says NO FRACKING, the moral case says NO Fracking, common sense says NO Fracking, the political case says NO Fracking and, most importantly of all, the people of Lancashire say NO Fracking

We invite Lancashire County Council, the North West Energy Task Force and Cuadrilla to join the Global Divestment Movement and join the Renewable Energy revolution

The Council motto of Blackpool, the main urban centre of The Fylde, is Progress and it is time for real Progress

Real Progress is saying NO to fracking and making Blackpool a green town and the North of England a green region

David Cameron, the UK Prime Minister as of 17th June 2015, made a promise to the people to lead the Greenest Government Ever

Fracking and all forms of extreme energy are completely incompatible with the Greenest Government Ever, therefore, fracking should not happen in the United Kingdom

We recognise the need for employment and energy solutions on The Fylde, and the wider North-West region, and recognise the efforts of the North West Energy Task Force in their attempts to find solutions, however, we reject their argument that fracking is the way forward and make an invitation to the North West Energy Task Force to join the green, sustainable revolution

We request that Lancashire County Council join the Global Divestment Movement and make plans to transfer all financial assets from fossil fuels and dirty industry to clean, green, sustainable industry, and make an urgent plan to tackle all emissions that contribute to sea-level rise, a huge issue in Lancashire that should be a priority for all Lancastrian politicians

We request that Cuadrilla also join the Global Divestment movement, as a sound business move”

The petition is being distributed around social media via Twitter and facebook, to all political parties, and to politicians such as Andy Burnham of the Labour Party, Graham Brady and Paul Maynard of the Conservative Party
