Over the past few weeks, trade unions in Lancashire and North Yorkshire have joined protests against fracking.
On the 4th of November, protesters marched to the Kirby Misperton fracking site.
They were led by drummers from the Public Commercial Services Union samba band. Also present were representatives from the Fire Brigades Union, Unite, Unite Community, all in solidarity with the Water Protectors. For weeks now, Third Energy has continued preparations for test fracking at the KM8 well near the town, despite protests from locals and anti-fracking groups such as Frack Free Lancashire.
