Frack Free Ryedale are joining up with other groups around the country to take part in a national campaign to highlight Barclays' involvement in fracking.
Barclays Bank own 97% of Third Energy, the company that is trying to frack at Kirby Misperton in Ryedale. We want the whole country to know that Barclays are funding this dangerous new fossil fuel, and to encourage people to close their accounts with the bank.
We will be posting information on how to join this campaign shortly, but you can start thinking what action you'd like to take in your area - perhaps a demonstration outside a branch or something else entirely. More soon!
