Frack Free Notts’ Alternative Market Stall at Vegan Food Market
Saturday February 3rd, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Frack Free Notts are running a stall at the Sneinton Market Vegan Food Market on Saturday 3rd February, 11am-3pm.
Bring items for donation to support the Misson Springs Protection Camp.
The good folk at Misson Springs Protection Camp need YOUR help in the fight against #Fracking!
They have set up the camp near the village of Misson, North Notts, to stand up to IGas and help defend the future of their village and the surrounding area.
The protectors are in urgent need of support. Luckily there’s an easy way you can help:
*****Come down to Sneinton Market this Saturday 3rd Feb to bring donations of your unwanted gear and have a chat with one of our friendly FFN volunteers.
A free “Fracking Myths and Facts” leaflet for every visitor to the stall ;-)*****
Get rid of your old stuff and feel good about helping a local community and an important cause in the process.
Please see the list below for donations that are being accepted –
ITEMS CURRENTLY NEEDED:
MSPC are setting up a community kitchen and need equipment to complete it such as –
Wood for burning and building
Food supplies: tinned food, vegetables, bread, meat, veggie options, eggs, houmous.
Large plastic containers with lids
They cannot take bedding or clothes at this time due to lack of storage space.
The list will be updated as time goes on and the needs of the camp changes.
In addition they need BOOTS ON THE GROUND AND PLENTY OF THEM!! Visitors to the IGas site gates are ALWAYS welcome, speak to a FFN volunteer at the Market or drop MSPC a line here:
We’re stronger when we’re united. Follow in the footsteps of Misson and Kirby Misperton and Say No to the #MotherFrackers !
WHAT’S HAPPENING AT MISSON?
IGas are attempting to drill 2 exploratory shale gas wells off the Springs Road in Misson, Nottinghamshire, with the long term goal of creating dozens of fracking wells across the countryside around Misson. Construction of the exploratory bore hole has begun, but progress is being slowed down by the protectors and other concerned locals.

HOW DOES THAT AFFECT ME?
If fracking goes ahead in Misson it could spell disaster for the rest of the county as it would be the first site to fall in a long list of Notts areas that fracking companies such as INEOS, IGas, and Third Energy are seeking access to – Notts sits on top of large tracts of shale rich land and many PEDL licenses have already been granted by the Oil and Gas Authority, including such precious spaces as underneath Sherwood Forest and the land around Clumber Park.
Fracking is linked to serious risks to public health, and affects communities that are adjacent to frack sites through issues such as groundwater contamination, falling house prices and threats to agriculture and wildlife, to name but a few.
