Hi Sebastian,

As you read this, Greenpeace volunteers are blocking Cuadrilla's fracking site in Lancashire. We're planning to stay here all day and peacefully resist plans to roll out this destructive industry.

Fracking companies, supported by Prime Minister Theresa May, are determined to get access to communities like the one here in Lancashire. They want to drill under homes and risk turning pristine countryside into an industrial zone.?

If fracking firms get their way, Britain could be burning shale gas for years to come -- right at the time scientists say we must start leaving fossil fuels in the ground if we're to avoid runaway climate change [1]. That's a risk we can't afford to take.

I'm stood here with Gill, a Greenpeace volunteer who told me this morning that it’s "scary that fracking could be inflicted on Lancashire."

Most days, Gill works close by to Cuadrilla’s fracking site near Blackpool. But today she's bravely and peacefully taking action to protect our children’s future and the countryside.

Taking on the fossil fuel industry is no small task. Yet there are people just like Gill who are committed to fending off fracking, in Lancashire and beyond. Right now they need to know people across the UK are with them.

Month after month, local people here have been blocking fracking firm Cuadrilla. Thanks to their tireless work, Cuadrilla is already running way behind schedule.

If fracking is allowed to go ahead in Lancashire, companies could get the go-ahead for more sites all over the UK. That’s why Gill is bravely blocking Cuadrilla’s fracking site. Today she's taking action for all of us.

We know that peaceful resistance can change things. When thousands of us took on Shell’s plans to drill for oil in the Arctic, it seemed like the odds were stacked against us. But by speaking out together, and through peaceful protest, we made it too embarrassing and too costly for them -- and eventually Shell gave up their plans to drill. [2]

Stopping Shell proved that people power can win out against even one of the world’s biggest fossil fuel firms. So together, we can do the same with fracking too.

Thanks for everything you do,

India
Greenpeace UK

NOTES:
[1] UCL researchers calculated that the world must leave half global gas reserves in the ground in order to prevent runaway climate change
[2] Victory: 3 years of people vs Shell?

An email I received from Greepeace today. I admire their dedication to protecting Mother Earth.

Ha, ha, ha, when I drive past at 6 in the morning there's nobody there. They don't turn up until mid morning and then tootle off to their warm cosy houses late afternoon. And it is only in the past couple of months that they've started to cause the mayhem.

The development is vast and Cuadrilla have kindly put up a viewing platform so that we can survey the area that has been cleared.

People have a right to Peaceful protest,but this is getting out of hand people in the middle of the road and traffic back up common the A 583 seems to be operating on a contraflow system....Those in the road should be warned and if they take no notice arrested the Authorities do not appear (being kind) to be in control...

It is the elected representatives who lost control when central government overruled their decision to reject fracking. All power to the demonstrators.
