Sunday Stall at Lush store

On Sunday we had a stall at the Lush store in Eldon Square, we informed the shoppers of the impending plans to begin Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) extraction along the North East coast.  Despite recent articles in the local press championing this relatively unheard of extraction process none of the people we spoke to had any idea of what is coming.

We were supported by volunteers from the local Greenpeace group, and we received around £50 donations from the charity pot which we will send to National organisation Frack-off, who supplied us with the leaflets on the day.  There is a lot of misinformation being spread about UCG, about its benefits and how green it is, especially as it will first be tried out along our beautiful coastline.
