The Big Rig Revolt – Sat 1st Dec

Submitted by brt on Tue, 11/13/2012 - 00:23

A dark cloud is gathering. The threat of unconventional gas development hangs over us all. With almost 100 test wells permitted and the first production development threatening Scotland, the government’s dash for gas depends on the creeping sell off of the British Isles.

This cabal of opportunistic extraction companies, government mandarins and political jokes think they are getting away with it. They are so FRACKING wrong.

On Dec 1st there will be a nationwide simultaneous show of resistance.

Communities threatened by fracking for shale gas, Coal Bed Methane and Underground Coal Gasification are uniting to stop these dangerous new forms of gas extraction.

Join Frack Free Somerset, Safe Energy Wales, Ribble Estuary Against Fracking, Residents Action on Fylde Fracking, Sussex Extreme Energy Resistance & the Campaign Against Climate Change on December 1st and REVOLT!

An up-to-date list of all those taking action on Dec 1st can be found here.

Find your nearest group here. Don’t have a group near you? Then get together with your friends or family and stand in solidarity with those immediately threatened by unconventional gas development. See the map below for action taking place on 1st December.

Need some inspiration? Watch this video to get some ideas on how to make your own DIY drilling rig!

On Dec 1st the message will be clear: unconventional gas development has no place in our energy future.
