Lobby of the Labour Party Conference
September 21, 2014 @ 12:00 - 14:00
Join us on the 21st September in Manchester for what we hope will be a massive lobby of Labour Party Conference.
We are calling on Labour’s shadow cabinet, Labour MPs and the party as a whole:
- To actively oppose the passage of the Infrastructure Bill (a.k.a. the “Fracking under our Homes Bill”)
- To give a Manifesto commitment to ban fracking for shale gas, CBM extraction and UCG everywhere in the UK
- To give a Manifesto commitment that Labour will implement the proposals of the One Million Climate Jobs report
We believe that all these things would be big vote winners for Labour, as well as the right kind of thing for any Government to be doing, which says it is serious about addressing the growing threat of irreversible and globally catastrophic climate change, reducing unemployment, addressing fuel poverty, and tackling our long term energy requirements as a country, without destroying the environment in the process.
PLEASE SUPPORT OUR CALL!
