Brent FoE public meeting with Andy Atkins

Brent FoE held a public meeting with Friends of the Earth Director, Andy Atkins, entitled 2064:  Our Planet in 50 Year's' Time - Ravaged Disaster or Eco Dream World?  It's Time to Decide. The meeting took place at Salusbury School in Queens Park on 18th June, and was attended by over 60 people. The audience included two Labour councillors and a representative from MP Sarah Teather's office, as well as many interested local people with links to other groups.  Andy's presentation was followed by a wide ranging and lively discussion on topics including changing climate, loss of biodiversity and lobbying for the forthcoming general election.

Dear Ian and Pam, 

Brent and fracking 

Thank you for your letter of 15 March 2014 and the postcards that you enclosed. It’s heartening to know that so many Brent residents passionately oppose hydraulic fracturing as much as the Council does; as you say, “Fracking is a dirty word”.

Brent FoE anti-Fracking event strikes a chord

Picture: Jan Nevill.

On Saturday 19th October, members of Brent Friends of the Earth held a successful action against the government's plans to press ahead with fracking for shale gas. Brent is among the areas that the government has designated for licensing for the technology, and while it is not likely that there would be drill holes at Willesden Green Station, it is not out of the question for fracking to take place in nearby Edgware, and certainly, if Boris Johnson gets his way, further afield in London.
