Contact Your Elected Representatives
MEP’s, MP’s and Local Councillors including Parish Councillors are all elected by us the people. They are there to be our advocates and to represent our views within the parties and groups they work within.
Don’t presume they will know anything about fracking, don’t presume they will be in favour of fracking, don’t presume anything.
Write polite and respectful letters informing them of your concerns. Ask them to detail what policies are in place and what views are held within the groups and organisations they represent.

NGO’s, Charities and Unions
The National Trust, Women’s Institute, Ramblers, Unison and Cancer Research to mention but a few, all have powerful voices. They lobby government on behalf of members and donors.
Write to them if you are a member or donor, ask them what stance they take on fracking. Raise your concerns and let them know that you want them to speak out on your behalf.
