Stop Barclays Fracking (Manchester)       

Barclays owns 97% controlling stakes in hydraulic fracking company, Third Energy. Despite overwhelming public opposition, Third Energy has been recently granted permission to start test drilling for shale gas in Ryedale, North Yorkshire. If plans go ahead, this will be the first fracking in the UK for over 5 years. It’s a devastating blow for the local community, but also has implications for us all.
