Details about Green Mondays and how to get there.
Martin is currently the Co-ordinator of Manchester Greenpeace Network. He has been an environmental activist for over 20 years - and, as well as having acted as Swampy’s ‘spin doctor’, he once shared a police cell with the then Greenpeace Executive Director, Peter Melchett!
More recently, he has been the media spokesperson for Frack Free Greater Manchester - and, in 2016, was one of the main organisers of the UK’s largest gathering against fracking. Last year, he helped organize a big Greenpeace protest outside Barclays’ (aka ‘THE DIRTY BANK’) branch in Manchester’s city centre, because of its funding of the tar sands pipelines in North America, & because of its funding of fracking in the UK - including Cuadrilla.
He is currently helping to co-ordinate actions & protests for the Global Climate Strike, 20-27 September.
Martin is expected to be speaking outside the gates at around 12.30pm.
No more Green Mondays planned. Cuadrilla have stopped their activities at Preston New Road because of the impacts of their 2.9 earth ’tremor’
