Members of the Warrior’s Call attended the Reclaim the Power event in Blackpool.
This was a great event with fantastic workshops on a range of activist skills including facilitating effective meetings, legal observer training & direct action training. There were also some great sessions for hearing about what activist groups have been doing around the UK and across the world to fight fracking and create fossil-free solutions for the future. There were also exciting opportunities for networking and action planning to link in with national and international events such as the Climate Change marches on 21st September this year and the Paris Climate Change summit in 2015.

The camp culminated in a march along the seafront in Blackpool on Sunday 17th August to show solidarity with the local campaigners from Frack-Free Lancashire – see photos here. This was followed by an amazing day of action on Monday 18th August targeting fracking companies and their supporters across the country https://www.facebook.com/301820216584422/photos/gm.840012399344802/546803015419473/?type=1&theater in which members of the Warrior’s Call participated.
This was an inspiring & empowering event. Together we will stop fracking in the UK.
