SEPTEMBER 10 UPDATE: This event has now been “postponed”.
Frack Free Surrey will be hosting a toxic teddy bears’ tea party in Croydon town centre on Saturday September 21. The event is planned as a way to let Croydon residents know that oil companies are looking to explore for oil and gas in Surrey, and the dangers that could bring.
There will be a picnic with tea and biscuits, costumed characters, Frack Off singing, a showing of the anti-fracking documentary film Gaslands (at 11am and 2pm), some Morris dancing (at 1.30pm) and a “die-in” (12.30pm).
There will be an information stall and activists present to answer questions about what fracking is, and why it is such a bad idea.
The event begins at 10.30am and runs until 2pm on Croydon North End, outside Lush, which is supporting the event with practical help and financial assistance to Frack Free Surrey.
