Global Frackdown

This Saturday, people across the world are coming together to be part of the ‘Global Frackdown’ and running peaceful, creative events to encourage more thinking outside the area of fossil fuels. The event in Sheffield has been put together by a collective of anti-fracking groups and is set to be one of the biggest anti-fracking events in the area. 

The event is divided into 3 parts:

PART 1 (2-4pm): The Frackdown Carnival kicks off with a mass rally at Barkers Pool. At 3pm key speakers will share their vision of the future without fracking and their own experiences of the anti-fracking fight, human rights, renewables, social movement and hope! There will also be samba, brass band, anti-fracking songs, street theatre and a mass bubble blow against fracking flow (bring your own bubbles!). Barker’s Pool, Sheffield, S1 2HB

PART 2 (4-6.30pm): An afternoon of free workshops, Q&A, talks and family-friendly fun at DINA, just 100m down the road. Food provided by DINA between 5.30-6.30pm (advance tickets only). DINA, 32 Cambridge Street, Sheffield S1 4HP. 

PART 3 (7.30pm-late): Fundraiser party at DINA – A celebration of a growing resistance – with funds raised going towards local appeals and resistance camps. With live music from Winston Macabre, Solar Love Society, 20ft Squid Blues Band, Otis Mensah and Poppers Revival. DINA, 32 Cambridge Street, Sheffield S1 4HP.
