Loud signs of support from the locals in Blackpool were expressed through drivers honking their horns and passers by joining in. About 300 protesters from the camp gathered by Blackpool South Pier and were joined by around 700 others.

On Sunday the 17th August 2014, Reclaim the Power organized to express their concern for the people of Lancashire who are in danger of being the first to find out the worst truths of fracking in the UK.

The march went from the South Pier along the coast to Blackpool Tower

In the US people whose land has been fracked are now suffering from a poisoned water supply and a number of horrendous diseases and yet the people of the UK are expected to trust the energy companies who tell us that its a safe practice. The serious consequences of fracking are well presented in a film called Gasland 1 and its sequel Gasland 2.

The Trespass Bill, if amended as proposed, will allow fracking companies to frack underneath people’s private land if it is passed, regardless of the owner’s permission.
