  • Freddy finds out what the kids at RTP think
  • Jamie Kelsey-Fry from the media team on how RTP, fracking and the dash for gas is joining the dots between different issues
  • Reclaim the Power camp second plenary – update from the action fairies; international solidarity message from Ghana; Tina from RAFF on network of anti-fracking campaigns and cross-country solidarity; anti-fracking campaigns in Algeria and the importance of global solidarity; the impacts of high gas prices on fuel poverty; why pensioners support the campaign against fracking and the dash for gas;¬†and scientist Simon Lewis on climate change
