Frackpool

17-18 September, campaigners will pitch near Blackpool for Camp Frack, a climate camp-style effort to burst the bubble of hydraulic gas fracking in the UK. Two activists scaled Blackpool Tower in August to drop a banner announcing a new anti-fracking website, www.frack-off.org. Fracking is a dangerous and highly polluting form of gas extraction which is banned in France.
