Graham Martin, who helped organise the event, said:
“We were absolutely overwhelmed by the turnout today, which exceeded all our expectations. This shows that more and more people across Yorkshire are waking up to the threat of fracking to the countryside, rural jobs, tourism, the environment and climate change.”
Russell Scott, of Frack Free North Yorkshire, said:York 160730 2 FFY
“People are now realising that with the whole of Yorkshire covered in fracking licences, fracking is now on everyone’s doorstep.”
