Another reason to love Vivienne Westwood
Vivienne Westwood took to the streets of London yesterday (Monday 27th April) holding a limbless bloodstained doll called a “fracked baby of the future” to raise awareness of the dangers of Fracking*.
According to Westwood over half the population of Britain don’t know what fracking is, let alone the dangers of it.
“I’m trying to get across to people, the danger we’re in,” she said. “We have to stop the destruction.”
Her son Joe Corre, the head of Talk Fracking, said: ”We’ve got to kick fracking out.”
”We need a proper sustainable renewable energy system for this country, so we can protect future generations and have something to look forward to as an earth we can all live on, not an earth that is completely destroyed,” he added.
Fracking is the process of drilling down into the earth before a high-pressure water mixture is directed at the rock to release the gas inside. Water, sand and chemicals are injected into the rock at high pressure which allows the gas to flow out to the head of the well. To read more about the dangers go to: http://www.dangersoffracking.com/
