Travel from Bristol & Somerset to Reclaim the Power
What is Reclaim the Power?
Reclaim the Power is an action camp taking place near Blackpool in Lancashire. More than 1,000 people are expected to attend to the week of action, workshops, learning and organising for social, environmental and economic justice.
The camp has been organised in solidarity with groups on the frontline against fracking.
“For three years we have grown our movement, shared the facts about fracking at public meetings, opposed planning applications, lobbied our MPs and done everything to ensure our voices are heard. They still aren’t listening though. We need all the help we can get. That Reclaim the Power are coming to stand by us as they did the residents of Balcombe is fantastic news and we look forward to offering a Lancashire welcome.’ Tina Louise from Residents Action on Fylde Fracking (RAFF)
