On Saturday 30th July, community groups from across Yorkshire and campaigners from all over the country came together for the biggest ever anti-fracking rally ever held in Yorkshire, and perhaps the country. About 3,000 people attended the rally and marched from Clifford's Tower to York Minster, where they heard speeches from campaigners, politicians and experts.
We would like to thank every single person who cam along to support the anti-fracking campaign in Yorkshire, and to those who sent good wishes and donated to help the organisers at Frack Free York recover their costs. It really was an extraordinary day.
We will be adding more information about the rally shortly. In the meantime, please visit our Frack Free Ryedale Facebook page for videos, photos and reaction to the rally.
