The Systems Change Working Group have recently had a shift in direction from a Gas focus to a broader perspective.
The Gas campaign was created in January 2018 to challenge the UK Government’s narrative that fossil gas is a clean, sustainable fuel. The campaign aimed to address the general lack of awareness around the issue of gas, as well as connecting to other groups campaigning on the issue across the UK. They campaign both nationally and internationally in cooperation with a variety of anti-fracking and climate action organisations.
In June 2018, the working group visited the Preston New Road fracking site and joined forces with local activists blocking Cuadrilla’s vehicles from entering the site. Alongside the COP Working Group, they brought an anti-fracking action to the Intersessional UN Climate Change Talks in May 2018 as part of the international campaign: Break the Fracking Cycle – two weeks of action targeting the fracking supply chain.
