Demonstration against coal gasification

Earlier this year, Ian Holmes-Lewis reported to Saline and Steelend residents on a meeting arranged by INEOS to outline their desire to frack in West Fife. However, the West Fife Villages area is also also affected by widely-reported coal gasification proposals. Fracking is currently part of a Scottish Government moratorium but coal gasification is not. Fife Council has written to the Scottish Government asking that gasification be added to the moratorium. Fracking and gasification companies, however, seem confident of support from Scottish Government ministers. Whether this confidence is justified remains to be seen.

West Fife villagers are being asked by a group opposing gasification to participate in a demonstration of solidarity by forming a chain across the Forth Road Bridge at 2pm on Sunday 11th October. It is anticipated that campaigners will be coming from throughout Scotland and other parts of the UK.
