An anti-fracking campaigner from the Fylde in Lancashire has been on hunger strike outside Downing Street for over two weeks, in protest against the government's policy on fracking.
Geyzer Tarjanyi says he sees his protest as 'symbolic of how sick fracking will make people who live in areas affected by fracking if it is allowed to go ahead.'
Today, at midday, Mr Tarjanyi will go to 10 Downing Street to attempt to talk to Mr Cameron about the dangers of fracking.
Mr Tarjanyi's concerns include:
- The dangers of fracking to the local community- in particular the government's recent announcement that the appeal on Cuadrilla's applications to frack in Lancashire, which were originally rejected by Lancashire County Council, will now be decided by Communities Secretary Greg Clark.
- Another of his concerns is the right of the Secretary of State to overrule a successful twelve-year campaign by the Protect Wyre group and allow salt mines to be used for gas storage.
