Anti-fracking activists have been shockingly jailed and Cuadrilla is scheduled to begin fracking at Preston New Road next week. At the same time as the latest IPPC report for the World Climate Summit in Poland in December (COP24) underlines the urgency for governments to take much more drastic measures to reduce emissions than were promised in Paris in 2015.
There is a Climate Emergency Public Meeting (jointly organised with Fossil Free GM & Manchester Campaign Against Climate Change next Tuesday 16th October, 7pm, at Friends Meeting House, near Manchester Town Hall, M2 5NS .
Time and time again, our establishment ends up protecting the interests of the fossil fuel companies over local communities. But we’ve found out that their appeal will be heard in court.
Half of the profits will go directly to the activists. Buying the shirt will help fund the legal work to get them free, along with their campaign for climate justice, and help support our party in changing the system for good.
It’s never been more important to take a stand against fracking. The courts have freed up Cuadrilla to start fracking.
By wearing the shirt, you’ll be directly funding the fight against fracking. And this fight is far from over.
