The Bentley Effect: Workshop + Film + Q&A with film makers

An East Yorkshire Film Premier – the story of a social movement

Mon 5th June – Old Town Hall (behind The Bell Hotel) Market Place, Driffield YO25 6AN

3pm – 5pm – Workshop
7pm – Film screening, followed by discussion.

Free or suggested donation £10 / £5

Campaigners who fought off extreme fossil fuel development in Australia are coming to East Yorkshire to share their experience of how local communities took on the might of the gas industry – and won.

Activists Brendan Shoebridge, Simon Clough and Ian Gaillard from northern New South Wales are screening their new documentary as part of a UK tour, and will be present for a question and answer session after the film, as well as leading a workshop beforehand.

The documentary, filmed over five years, chronicles how people in the Northern Rivers region, facing plans by Metgasco to drill for coal seam gas, organised themselves to rally in a series of peaceful blockades.

In the final confrontation, thousands gathered in the farming valley of Bentley. They faced 850 riot police who had been ordered to break up the protest. As a result of the stand-off, the state government suspended the gas company’s licences in May 2014 and a year later bought then back for $25m.

The film’s director, Brendan Shoebridge, told ABC News:

“The whole world needs to recreate what we saw at Bentley.

“There was a groove that happened and it was a phenomenal thing where an amazing tipping point occurred and that was just to save that one specific region, but the world has to get into that groove.

“I would hope the world sees it and starts to think ‘Well, how can I take a lead in this must-win battle?’”

Simon Clough, the former deputy mayor of Lismore, told ABC News he hoped the film would inspire people in the UK to “protect their land and their livelihoods”.

“This is an international and global crisis, the whole unconventional gas drilling threatens everyone’s water and everyone’s air. It’s a global problem not just for the Northern Rivers and Australia.”

They will be leading a workshop between 3 and 5pm covering strategy sessions and non-violent direct action.  All welcome.

Meet The Regulators

Everyone is welcome to come along anytime between 2 – 7pm …

As regulators and agencies involved in assessing the impacts of the oil and gas industry our role is to ensure that any exploration and development, including fracking operations, is done in a way that protects people and the environment.

Local communities rightly look to us all to provide reassurance that health and environmental risks are being controlled and managed properly, and to hold oil and gas operators to account. This session will be a great opportunity for us to meet with local people, explain our respective roles and to discuss some of the key issues before sites are identified for development.”

Fracking rig in Pennsylvania

The eye-opening film tells of Pennsylvania residents experience of living in a gas field.

“Pennsylvania’s fracking experience is a warning to Yorkshire”

A couple from North Yorkshire who visited fracking areas in Pennsylvania say their experiences should be a warning to Yorkshire. Joanne and Steve White retraced the journey made by their local MP Kevin Hollinrake – speaking with many of the same people – to find out what living with fracking is like from an ordinary resident’s point of view. Mr White said “We started off being completely neutral about fracking. We haven’t opposed fracking because we’re zealots and have some kind of mission. We’re just normal people who wanted to see first-hand what living alongside fracking would be like.”

Video footage of their visit has now been compiled into a short film titled “Living With Fracking”. Mr White said “We want people to watch this and make up their own minds. We think people need to have their eyes opened.”

The film is being shown at Bridlington Spa at 7:30pm on Wed 3rd August.  Entrance is free and Mr and Mrs White will be there to take part in a Q&A session afterwards to discuss their experiences.

Rally for Ryedale – Decision Day

Fri 20th May, 09:00-17:00 – North Yorkshire County Hall, Northallerton

*Update: it seems likely that due to the numbers of people wanting to speak against this will now run in to Monday, so a decision will not be reached on Friday.*

nyccdecisionday2

North Yorkshire Council will decide whether fracking should go ahead in Ryedale.

Join community leaders, residents and high profile speakers outside N.Y. County Council for a day of peaceful, community-led activities standing with people in Ryedale and North Yorkshire against fracking.

The rally is part of a weekend of action celebrating 5 years of no fracking in Britain, with people across the country calling on the Government to not force fracking on any community.

#DontFrackYorkshire #5yearsfrackfree

Thousands of people in Ryedale have objected to fracking, and the local district council has said no. As the environmental and health risks of fracking become clearer, the case for it is falling apart. If we stand together we can stop fracking being forced on any community – join us at Northallerton and keep the UK free from fracking.

9:00 – Assemble outside the Council to present objections and petitions to Councillors as they enter County Hall

10:00 – 13:00 – Rally against fracking outside North Yorkshire County Hall and during the breaks in proceedings, hear from local and national speakers.

During the day – Listen to the proceedings live, and join in with activities, entertainment, music and refreshments throughout the day while we wait for the decision.

Can’t make the demo? Show your objection by emailing the council.

Pocklington Town Council

Meeting with Councillors on Fracking

Cancelled

Pocklington Town Council, “would like to offer the public an opportunity to attend a meeting of the council” where “they can speak about their concerns. It will not be a council meeting but will be attended by councillors.”

“The decision was made to postpone the meeting as it was proving difficult to get someone to speak about the potential benefits”

Frack Free East Yorkshire note that this is not the first time a meeting on fracking has been cancelled for this reason, and expresses disappointment at this decision.

We very much hope the meeting is re-arranged in the very near future, as gas companies must not be allowed to get away with suppressing discussion by refusing to appear in public.
