The truth behind the dash for gas

You now have the opportunity to see new film by Frack Free Somerset examining the potential impacts of fracking and coal bed methane extraction in Somerset and beyond. It includes the social, health and environmental consequences associated with unconventional gas drilling. A screening is being organised by the Community Cafe group at Boston Tea Party in Honiton on Thursday 27th February 2014 – 7.30pm.

The majority of Somerset is licensed for oil and gas extraction and this film sets the scene for community awareness so we can defend our landscape from becoming Gasfields.

Admission £5/£3 concessions. The film will be followed by discussion. Refreshments available. All welcome.
