Antrim - Event Notice

Stop the Drill weekend at Woodburn with music, food and workshops. Saturday 18th June

category antrim | environment | event notice author Monday June 13, 2016 21:47author by anon - Fracking Free Ireland Report this post to the editors

An oil and gas company called Infrastrata has been given a fifty year lease to drill less than 400 metres from a reservoir at Woodburn near Carrickfergus - on public land within our water catchment. At no point were we consulted.

The consequences of unconventional drilling on health and the environment are well documented. This is why it has been banned all over the world - from France to Germany, Wales to Nova Scotia..

We all live downstream.. We all share the same water table. This is a cross community all islands event with representatives from across the water and across the border who are facing or have faced similar challenges.
Stop the Drill Weekender Sat 18th and Sun 19th June : Woodburn : Terry Hooley presents 'Bad Vibrations' all island musical gathering on Saturday. Meet the 'NANAs' from England on Sunday.

We are standing together for the right to clean water for ourselves and future generations. The executive must step in now to throw out this illegal and immoral agreement with Infrastrata.

Have you ever wanted to visit the site? Would you like more information about what is happening? Or have you just wanted to come and be part of this? NOW is the time to visit. The drill is happening NOW.

There will be tours of the site, nature walks, kids area, talks and workshops and a Bad Vibrations area with seismic sounds curated by Ecstatic in the Attic and Shizznigh. Line up will posted over the next few days but but it goes without saying that Terri Hooley will be making an appearance.

If you have skills to offer such as - making a pot of food, sticking up posters, doing a talk, driving a car load of people up to the site, facepainting, running a workshop with kids.. Please put a post on the events page or contact the organisers.

We'll be running a bus from Belfast City Hall at midday up to the site. Watch this space for for more details re transport -also see facebook entry below. Anyway, Its simple enough to get to Woodburn. Its not much more than a fiver from Carrickfergus train station.

See you on the 18th.
