Please sign and spread: Open letter in response to ‘absurdly harsh’ sentencing of anti-fracking campaigners

Via Crit Geog Forum

Dear all,

Some of you may have seen that over 200 Sussex University academics published an open letter to express their serious concerns about the long prison sentences for some anti-fracking campaigners last week. (Independent article here).

We received widespread support and decided to open the letter up and turn it into an open letter from academics across the UK. The link to sign is here.

We would appreciate if you could share widely – on email lists, on twitter (see post by CGPE_Sussex), and anywhere else. And of course, please sign if you share our concerns.

Thanks,
Andrea
