Stop Barclays Funding Fracking! Lytham, 25 October 10.00 – 11.00 am

Barclays Bank owns Third Energy, a company which is planning to undergo fracking in Ryesdale, North Yorkshire. We want as many people as possible to show up, sign our petition, and write a letter to the bank manager and/or your local MP.

This is a peaceful and legal action. We will gather outside Barclay’s Bank in Lytham to inform the public and get signatures.

many people to attend as possible.
