Solidarity with Lancashire from Falkirk Community Groups

A number of representatives from Community groups around Falkirk and surrounding areas gathered at the Kelpies to drink awareness to the Scottish Government Consultation on Fracking and to send solidarity to the communities in Lancashire which are sadly on the front line of the fracking industry at present. The Falkirk event was co-ordinated by Scotland against Fracking 

"Residents across the Falkirk area know what it is like to live on the fence line of polluting industries. There is no such thing as clean fracking. The industry is not needed and not wanted anywhere in the UK and should not be allowed anywhere" Norman Philip, co-ordinator of Friends of the Earth
