Tanya Jones, anti-fracking activist and Green Party candidate in Northern Ireland, collaborated with the Democracy Center and other activists from Ireland and Scotland on a workshop at Preston New Road during the Rolling Resistance in July 2017.

- We must connect with our friends, because we are global.
- We must connect with our enemies, because we are non-violent.
