Yorkshire says NO to fracking

Following the decision by North Yorkshire County Council to approve a fracking application at Kirby Misperton despite overwhelming local opposition, campaigners have applied for a judicial review. On the 30th July, more than 2,000 people came to the rally, to show their objections to the decision and say NO to fracking in Yorkshire. The protest started with a march from Clifford's Tower (the Eye of York) to York Minster, and ended with speeches. You can watch part of the march in the below video.
