Ban Fracking in Northern Ireland

Fracking is toxic, it rips up our countryside and pollutes the water we drink.
In the 'New Decade, New Approach' agreement, there's no mention of fracking even though it's banned in Scotland, England and the Republic of Ireland.

Why is this important?

The climate crisis means that government in NI should commit to keeping fossil fuels in the ground. In August last year, earthquakes from fracking in the UK were big enough to damage people's homes.
Fossil fuel company Tamboran have an application to start fracking in Co Fermanagh sitting on Diane Dodds desk and if this gets the green light will cause devastation to local communities, nature, people's health and livelihoods. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-northern-ireland-48191165

  • Today Northern Ireland has more than 1,000 people suffering with Covid 19. We in in the Republic have over 4,600. Science tells us that the side-effects of Fracking & Covid 19 respects no borders, be it on land, rivers or lakes! Both are lethal in their own way! Science has proven again & again that Fracking destroys the quality of water, plants, soil & communities. Have not the people of Northern Ireland suffered more than enough?!?! GšŸŒæ
  • Because we need Socialism!
