Women chain themselves to Conservative Club in fracking protest

Barclays Pickering

11:19am 6th November 2017

12 protectors demonstrated outside the Conservative Party building in Pickering this morning, chaining themselves to the railings and wearing sashes reading “Ban Fracking #WeSaidNo”.

The group of women, who all live in Ryedale, then proceeded to carry out a pop-up protest outside Pickering’s Barclays Bank, who are financing the fracking operation at KM8 through their subsidiary, Third Energy.

A spokesperson for the protectors said:

“The Suffragette’s had to battle for the most basic rights. We are determined to fight with the same dogged determination for our right to clean water and air.

We will continue until our government listens to our voices.

Every time we complain of poor practice or planning breaches we are told that fracking is safe, and we have gold standard regulation.

This is simply not what we are witnessing.”
