Victory on fracking

After 8 years of campaigning by 'local communities supported by NGOs like Friends of the Earth, the UK government has announced a moratorium on fracking in England.

This is a huge victory for all the people fighting fracking and for the climate. It shows what can be achieved when communities join together for a common goal.

Of course, Friends of the Earth always has, and always will, call for a full fracking ban and for the government to stop supporting fracking overseas, but now is a great moment to celebrate what we have achieved.
