Dear AE Yates of Bolton...

The supply chain supporting the fracking industry in its undemocratic, immoral and dagerous work... needs to reconsider and get informed about the consequences of their actions on our communities. AE Yates of Bolton are doing much of the pad building for Cuadrilla's site in Lancashire at Preston New Road and we need their staff to get this information.
....................................................................................................

Dear staff at A E Yates Ltd. - I am a resident of Blackpool where you are currently working with Cuadrilla Resources on the construction of a shale gas site. I doubt you were made aware by the company of what you were becoming part of and I hope you will now take the time to look into this.

Your company employs nice mums and dads, grandparents etc and all of them have the right to know what harms may come to children as a result of the work you are undertaking. We do not wish to harm business that pays staff - but this industry is not 'business' as we accept it - it is a proven (600+ peer-reviewed studies & countless bans on medical grounds) danger to our children, pregnant mothers, livestock, pets, agricultural businesses and the wellbeing and health of the community it operates in.

We don't want matters to escalate but we are defending our young and you need to know that we would consider ourselves negligent if we simply stood back and let the known harms come close to them.

Please reconsider your contract with Cuadrilla and stop work on this project... we could crowd-fund if work is lean and you need a hand getting through or perhaps help in other ways by promoting your business as the good one in return? What are your views on this? 

Tina
