Fundraiser roast for anti-fracking activists (Dec 10 Brighton UK)

  • Cowley Club 12 London Road Brighton (map)

Come along to the Cowley Club for luscious vegan roast dinner to raise the funds for anti-fracking activists' fines. Serving from midday til 4pm on the 10th December.. Yum.

The plucky five were arrested at #BroadfordBridge oil site, near Billingshurst, West Sussex in the summer in two different actions blockading the site and preventing the climate crime that day. 

If you can't come but are able to contribute(thanks!) or help promote the fund, here's the link https://chuffed.org/project/help-pay-1690-penalty-for-broadford-bridge-protectors#/comments
