ACTION YOU CAN TAKE RIGHT NOW!

Online Petitions, letters, social media campaigns etc
Welcome
We are a growing group of Barnsley residents who love our area and have come together to campaign to keep the fracking industry from destroying our communities.

In December 2015, the UK Government issued licences to fracking companies that cover almost all of Barnsley and surrounding areas. They do not even need permission to drill under your home!

The fracking companies are powerful, stinking rich and supported by the Government. The people of Barnsley must unite to keep them from putting our community and future at risk.


We will not be easy pickings for an industry that makes huge profits by risking damage to

our children's health and the very ground we stand on.

If you feel the same, we need you to join our fight to keep Barnsley Frack Free.
Please get involved, the greater our number, the louder our voice. 
 
Please join us, this is a fight we will only win together!
