Issue No. 2461

More than 100 people attended Frack Free Scarborough’s public meeting on Thursday of last week.

It was agreed to petition the local council and to call on the local football team to ditch fracking sponsor Third Energy and to picket Barclays Bank, which owns 97 percent of Third Energy.

Speakers included the Campaign Against Climate Change Trade Union Group’s Martin Empson, as well as community campaigners and local Green Party spokesperson David Malone.

An activists’ meeting is planned for 16 July.
