No to fracking in Wales

by Huw Pudner
Issue No. 2408

Around 100 people came to a meeting at the Guildhall in Swansea to debate fracking on Thursday of last week.

The meeting was one of a series across Britain in areas where fracking is looming ever nearer. 

Not a single pro-fracking speaker accepted the invitation to speak, nor a single Swansea councillor.

Still the meeting went ahead. Frack Free Wales and Safe Energy Wales both took part.

An anti-fracking activist from Pennsylvania joined them, and outlined the dangers fracking poses to human health.

While it is true that we have to debate fracking, we also have to discuss how to organise to stop it.
