Urgent: legal challenge to fracking

Target £10,000 by Apr 28th, 2019, 1pm

Woodsetts Against Fracking urgently need funds to appoint experts for a public inquiry. Ineos Shale claim to listen to the communities where they want to frack but despite 90+% disapproval and less than 1% in favour in the village of Woodsetts, plus two planning refusals from the Borough Council, they are pressing on with their drilling application.

This means a small community faces a large corporation and its multi billion-pound owner at a public inquiry. Please help to fund the best possible case against Ineos which means paying for a professional legal team and a team of experts.

Campaigners have already won a major legal victory against a “draconian” injunction granted to Ineos. An international tribunal recommends worldwide ban on fracking. Woodsetts is a key case ; the tide is turning against fracking and a refusal at this public inquiry will be hugely damaging to the fracking industry. Fracking investors are already considering their position. This is our chance to send a message to them. Please contribute now and share with friends and family.
