Great response from Labour members and supporters at the gates of the Third Energy fracking site today, 11th October 2017. From 8.30 over a hundred gathered during the morning to show our continued and growing opposition to fracking here or anywhere. David Yellen, Chair of the Constituency Party, applauded the bravery and commitment of the Protectors for their peaceful but determined struggle to stop fracking at Kirby Misperton. He pledged continued support of the local labour party. ‘The gas must stay in the ground’, he said, and welcomed and thanked all who attended including delegations from Scarborough, York, Mirfield, Selby and East Yorkshire constituency parties.
Alan visited the Kirby Misperton Protection Camp on Saturday 13th May to meet the anti fracking campaigners and show his support for their stand against fracking and to attest his own strong opposition to fracking.

Jeremy Corbyn came to York on 10th May as part of the launch of the Party’s 2017 General Election campaign. He was greated by a large and wildly enthusiastic crowd which filled and overflowed from St Helen’s Square. His passionate and vigorous speech outlined Labours proposals for a radical socialist alternative not just to the austerity of Theresa May but to the establishment norms of the last 30 years. He was so mobbed by supporters that it took fifteen minutes to move the 100 yards from the platform to the car which was waiting to take him to the sixth rally of the day and 38th of the campaign launch.
