green party update:It is the second day of the trial of five Balcombe anti fracking protesters,

It is the second day of the trial of five Balcombe anti fracking protesters, including Green Party Brighton MP, Caroline Lucas.

Speaking after the first day in court, Caroline said:

"We were moved by the support shown for us at Brighton Magistrates Court on Monday and I would like to thank everyone who wrote and tweeted in support. I am pleased that this has put the focus firmly on the dangers around Fracking.
 
To avoid catastrophic climate change we need a rapid shift to a zero carbon economy, matched with policies to keep the majority of known fossil fuels in the ground. The window for action is closing fast."
 
Today, we are calling on the Prime Minister to redirect the billions of UK fossil fuel subsidies into flood relief and adequate flood protection. 

Add your voice to Caroline's and the other protesters by taking action today.

If you want to learn more about fracking and how you can help prevent runaway climate change each day we will share more ways you can take action here.

Thank you for your continued support.
