Will you allow industry practices to be deployed in Sussex that will pollute air, waste vast quantities of water, cause constant noise pollution, over-stress our roads, industrialise our countryside, devalue our homes and could irreversibly contaminate our water supplies?
Will you accept a financial bribe from this government in exchange for your health and that of your children?
What is Fracking?
Hydraulic fracturing or 'Fracking' refers to the procedure of creating fractures in rock formations by drilling and then injecting a mixture of water, sand and highly toxic chemicals into cracks at high pressure to force them further open and release the gas.
Many cases of water, air and land contamination are being recorded in the US, Australia and Poland where Fracking has gone into full commercial production. We are at a critical point in UK where we face the same fate...
How will it affect Sussex?
Sussex has recently become the front line in the fight against Fracking. People, from all walks of life, are coming together, with raised awareness of the dangers of Fracking, to take a stand against profit hungry oil and gas companies.
Because of our local geology we are faced with the threat of thousands of gas wells being drilled across the Sussex Weald. The battle to protect our water began in Balcombe, but it is bigger than Balcombe. This issue affects ALL OF US!
What can I do?
We need you. We need your support, your knowledge and your talents to help stop this dangerous industry. This site aims to provide guidance on what you can do locally and nationally.
The first step is awareness. Read the articles, watch the videos and do your own research! Then tell other people about it. If you care for your health, your country and future generations, NOW is the time for action!

What better way to make a small contribution to the cause? We have produced a fabulous CD with 20 tracks by some of Sussex's best artists!
About 32,000 square miles of Britain are believed to have potential for shale development, with the biggest concentrations of wells expected to be in Lancashire and the Sussex Weald.
From March 28th 2014 the frack dealers that run this country started forcing through a swathe of drilling licenses that could affect every single one of us - potentially causing irrevocable damage to our health and our wild ecology. Are we really going to let them get away with it?
Four Lessons From the U.S. for Countries About to be Fracked:
1. Fracking Companies have Systematically Run Over Communities in the U.S.
2. Fracking Contaminates Water and Water Wells and Can Suck Entire Towns Dry.
3. In Spite of Industry Claims, They Can’t Predict Exactly What Will Happen Underground During Fracking.
4. Fracking Leaks Methane and Other Dangerous Chemicals Into the Atmosphere at Alarming Rates.
