UK councils are investing millions in the global fracking industry
After long delays, the fracking industry is now poised to frack for gas in the UK for the first time in 7 years. This is devastating news for the community on the frontlines in Lancashire, where local democracy was overturned to make way for the industry – and they aren’t giving up without a fight.
Fracking isn’t just happening in the UK – it’s a global industry, having global impacts. From Australia to Argentina – fracking projects are threatening communities, destroying local landscapes, and fuelling climate change.
Our local councils are investing in the companies responsible. By investing, they are supporting the fracking industry worldwide.
