Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson and MP Michelle Gildernew have officially launched the countdown to an Anti-Fracking Conference, taking place on Friday 20th Feb.

Speaking from the launch at the Lough Erne Resort, Michelle Gildernew MP said: “Three weeks from today the first-ever anti-fracking conference to be held in Europe is going to take place right here in Fermanagh.

“I cannot express the importance of this conference and I thank Martina for choosing to host it here in Fermanagh.

“The Scottish government’s recent moratorium on fracking proves that more and more people across the world accept that fracking has a devastating impact on the environment, agriculture, health and tourism.

“A number of experts in these fields are addressing the conference. These include a key note address from Andy Gheorghiu, author of the Friends of the Earth Fracking Frenzy report.

“Sinn Féin has stood firm in our opposition to fracking. This conference will highlight how we will continue to oppose it.

“I would encourage those wishing to highlight their opposition, express their concerns or simply learn more to attend the conference. To register e-mail nathan_mcglinchey@outlook.com”, she concluded.
