Get Fracktious – National Climate March in London

The Campaign against Climate Change, a UK-based group concerned with raising public awareness to human-caused climate change, is organizing a demonstration march through London on Saturday 1st December 2012. The main topic is the expansion of hydraulic fracturing or fracking, a destructive extraction practice of previously un-tappable “shale-gas”, in the UK, which is seen as a step backwards regarding actions against climate change.

In line with their message, they will try to build a mock fracking rig outside the parliament and a gas pipeline from the Canadian High Commission to the US embassy.
