Grab your friends, your dancing shoes and a helping of defiance and **ROCK ON DOWN** to Preston New Road, Lancashire this summer for a peoplepowered, resistance-fueled ‘Block Around the Clock’! For 48 hours we’ll be bringing some extra party spirit to the frontline against fracking. In our hundreds and thousands at the roadside, we’ll be preventing work from happening with our presence and sending a clear message to the frackers they are not welcome - not here, not anywhere.

Everyone is welcome, especially if you’ve never been involved in anything like this before. Food provided, friends to be made and a whole programme of trainings, workshops, talks and events to get everyone informed, engaged and skilled up to take on the fossil fuel industry.

‘Block Around the Clock’ is the final showdown of the United Resistance and an epic three months of action, as well as the 3 year anniversary of historic anti-fracking victory at Lancashire County Council - it’s time to get up, get down, and show Cuadrilla what we’re about.

Let’s Block. Around. The Clock.


Time and again, local communities have shown the shale gas industry it has no social license to frack in the UK. But the Conservatives are continuing their plan to force this dirty drilling on communities. With a long winter behind us and fracking proposed to start soon at Preston New Road, it is now more important than ever to show the locals of Lancashire that we stand with them.

This Reclaim the Power mass action and camp is part of the United Resistance, a bold 3 months of action organised by Lancashire locals. They are calling on anti-frackers from across the country to join them and take action, with at least one action per week planned between April and June. For more information check:

Reclaim the Power is a UK-based direct action network fighting for social, environmental and economic justice. We aim to build a broad-based movement, working in solidarity with frontline communities to effectively confront environmentally destructive industries and the social and economic forces driving climate change.
