As fracking begins in the UK for the first time in seven years

We stand with Lancashire

Read some of the messages sent from across the world to the community on the frontlines of the industry:

“Because fossil fuels are not the future they are the past. Because a democratic government services the people and shall not decide over their heads. Because solidarity is empowering. Keep fighting, raise your voice, people of the UK and around the world support you.”

— L, Finland


“You are all doing a marvellous job. Although I live so far away, I am with you in spirit.”

— David, Thailand


“I grew up in Lancashire, it’s a beautiful area of the country. So glad you’re fighting to keep it that way and to do your bit for the environment. I’m up in Shetland now but will be with you in spirit! Love to you all.”

— Cindy, UK

“I hope you can defeat the powerful gas and oil lobby. Fracking does not belong near homes. I should know, fracking has been going in my community for over a year – 500 feet from homes. Say no to fracking!”

— Betsy, United States


“Groningen, Ons laand, Ons lu in solidarity with Lancashire and the UK against fracking.”

— Gert, Netherlands


“We cannot just roll over and take this treatment. I will always maintain that standing together in solidarity is the best way to fight back against oppression of any kind. You all have my full support from up here in the Highlands of Scotland.”

— Alan, Scotland (UK)

“You have a ton of support from here in New Zealand. Personally, I wish I could be there with you standing on the front line. Don’t give up!”

— Jim, New Zealand


“Lancashire was my home for a year and still feels like a second home, I don’t want to see its beautiful countryside destroyed.”

— Patricia, Germany


“This is a disaster for the earth, the UK and the county and people of Lancashire. We will continue to fight against fracking in others areas and the cessation of this in Lancashire.”

— Akasha, France

Stand with Lancashire

As fracking starts in the UK, sign this letter of solidarity with the community on the frontlines in Lancashire, and add your own message of support:

"I stand in solidarity with the people of Lancashire on the frontlines of fracking in the UK. People power has kept this industry at bay for years - we will fight on. We stand with you and say no to fracking; not here, not anywhere."


"I stand in solidarity with the people of Lancashire on the frontlines of fracking in the UK. People power has kept this industry at bay for years - we will fight on. We stand with you and say no to fracking; not here, not anywhere."

Fracking is a toxic industry. It threatens our health, landscapes, communities and climate, and has been rejected by the people of Lancashire. The industry's start is devastating for this community on the frontlines of fracking, and for people around the world whose lives and livelihoods are threatened by climate change.

But there are reasons for hope. People power and local action has kept this industry at bay for over seven years in the UK. Cuadrilla’s actions will only inspire more people to join the movement, determined to stop fracking from spreading.

So while our friends are jailed for peaceful protest, and our government tries to trample local democracy to force through fracking, we are not defeated. We must continue to oppose fracking wherever the industry threatens communities, and to stand with the people of Lancashire as they continue their fight.

Let’s send the Lancashire community a powerful message of hope and support.

When you sign, you can choose to leave your own message as well. We will be delivering the messages to the fracking site itself on Saturday 20th October, so your name and words of support will find their way to the frontline of the struggle.
