Dame Vivienne Westwood joined Talk Fracking for the launch of our new billboard, cradling a ‘fracked baby of the future’ at Westminster Bridge, London. The impacts of fracking are harmful to our health, the economy and our environment, but our government continues to ignore the mountain of evidence.

The mock election billboard is an adaptation of the Conservative Party’s campaign billboard that read, “Let’s stay on the road to a stronger economy.” Our re-working depicts the prospective devastation we face should we remain on this dangerous road “to a fracked future” that will lead to the bleak realities of: “Catastrophic climate change. Birth defects. Energy insecurity. Toxic legacy. With no democratic mandate.”
