Fighting Fracking?  Get Trained Up

Objectives

Reclaim the Power is holding anti-fracking Direct Action Training weekends in Hebden Bridge on 13th and 14th May, in Nottingham on 3rd and 4th June.  The training provides skills, knowledge and practice, and networking with others who are resisting fracking, with opportunities to share ideas and resources to help build a stronger, more cohesive movement.  This is an opportunity to find out about non-violent direct action as an additional, effective tool to combat fracking.

Hopes and Challenges

We hope that, by reaching people from many communities and groups determined to resist this unnecessary, damaging threat to our environment, our training weekends will help strengthen the anti-fracking movement.
