Film Screening and Q&A on Fracking
BrentFriends of the Earth members campaigned outside Barclays in Cricklewood on Saturday 10thOctober to tell the bank to stop backing fracking. The group used placards, bottles of 'fracking water'and leaflets to raise awareness, and a petition to put pressure on the bank over its investment in the dirty fossil fuel extraction in Ryedale, Yorkshire.
Barclays bank owns 97% of Third Energy – a company planning to frack very close to the North York Moors National Park. Barclays has a long history of funding dirty energy, but this would be the first time a major High Street bank is directly investing in fracking in the UK.
