There is a little group in Glastonbury,
of people who want to change the world.
We get together in a Glastonbury Library,
and decide what's best to be done.
We've been together since March 2017,
with people coming and going,
leaving their mark and helping us out
but the core of us are still here,
and on and on we go.
I am so proud to be a part of this group,
and feel I have finally found
a place to call home, something to jump into,
to become my full self.
So much have we achieved so far,
And much is yet to come...
but each action shows how we truly are
Friends of the Earth...
We have done numerous stalls at many events,
spreading the word about the danger of fracking
and the plight of the bees...
here we are at the 'Bee Groovy' event...
We supported the Coastal Protectors meeting in Weston-Super-Mare
and met many fellow anti-frackers. A conglomeration of many minds full of information...
and a very positive view of the future. We made these magnets for it...
Three of us went to Chalice Well to spread the word about
the dangers of fracking to the waters of Glastonbury...
I created this video about it:
We supported the movie showing of The Bentley Effect at Glastonbury Town Hall,
a heartfelt film about how a community came together to stop fracking at Bentley, Australia.
The sheer numbers and solidarity of the group forced the government to withdraw the licenses.
What an incredible message to send to the people of Glastonbury... we can do it too!
... And Indra made some Frack Pants!
On Saturday 7th October we hosted our first ever Glastonbury Friends of the Earth Fundraiser,
raising money for the front line activists at Preston New Road fracking site in Lancashire.
We want to show some solidarity from the south to the north.
If we can't be there physically, we can be there in spirit,
for if we stop it there, we stop it here.
