MESSAGE
Subject: Before I vote, I’d like to know where you stand on Fracking?

You are standing in my local electoral area and I’m writing to you because I am concerned about the threat of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and unconventional fossil fuel extraction in Ireland.  Fracking threatens our water, land, climate and our public health.  We have already seen the damaging impacts from areas where fracking is underway, notably in the USA and Australia.  There is no place for this dirty, climate-polluting industry in the transition to a low carbon future for Ireland.

In advance of the local elections, I would like to know your position on fracking in my area. Will you support a fracking free Ireland?, and show your support by committing to the ‘Fracking Free Ireland’ pledge below.

“I support a Fracking Free Ireland.  If elected, I will work to ensure that fracking is not permitted in my area”

To sign the pledge just email frackingfree@foe.ie including your name and party affiliation, if you have one. Please do copy me in by way of reply, thanks. Friends of the Earth will post on their website a list of those who have made the commitment to support a healthy and safe fracking free future for us all.

If you have already signed the pledge, thank you!
