In hours a Spanish oil ‘baron’ could be chosen as our European Commissioner on Climate. And only we can stop this shocking appointment!

The recent actions which you may have taken part in via email have had a fantastic response. It’s not often that the Belfast Telegraph do a story about citizens emailing MLA’s. The planners on the Ballinlea issue even had to supply us with a different email address for the Facebook and Twitter campaign as our action blocked their account. We need to keep this going as since the start of this campaign there has never been a better opportunity for the NI assembly to put a halt to Fracking. The time to act is now and every voice matters.
