Balcombe anti-fracking campaigner overturns obstruction conviction

Balcombe anti-fracking campaigner overturns obstruction conviction.


  1. Thanks for this message and I am pleased that finally the simplicity of the water usage\ contamination issue is fully grasped.

    This was a really toxic problem with Green Party representatives on anti-fracking fb sites. Pollution is good enough. I have been arguing that from a linguistic angle Climate Change is meaningless and Pavlov’s Dog response guaranteed by polluters.

    As Anti-fracking becomes a major election issue I hope that Greenpeace will persist, relentlessly, in getting the facts of this dreadful wrong move into public debate.

    Despite excellent work done by Environmental Audit Committee Chair Joan Walley; and the anti-fracking ban in Scotland, I am astonished that so few MPs took their chance with deadly Infrastructure Bill.

    Whenever America is cited Halliburten Loophole should be cited. The destruction of waterways and landscapes as the short-life frackinbg pads have proliferated is a massive act of ecocidal insanity.

    Now with oil prices down is renewables time.

    What is wrong with the Labour Party?

    >Hi nick,
    >If we learned one thing in the last 7 days it’s this — when it comes to stopping fracking, the world moves fast! In case you missed the dramatic news, here’s what happened:
    >On Monday hundreds of us gathered outside Parliament, rallying MPs to vote against David Cameron’s plan to make us powerless to stop fracking.
    >Moments before the crucial vote, our petition to MPs surged past 360,000 signatures.
    >Dozens of MPs valiantly got behind our cause in Westminster, championing a fracking ban (which meant bad news for the prime minister).
    >Though this wasn’t enough to defeat the prime minister’s plan, a chain reaction was about to begin. First, new rules to protect water sources and national parks from fracking were announced.
    >Then on Wednesday, something incredible… Scotland blocked fracking!
    >While Scotland breathes a sigh of relief, the ban is only temporary. We’ll need to keep the pressure on to make it permanent. And in communities on the front-line of fracking — like in Lancashire where Cuadrilla’s bullying tactics mean that drilling could be approved within weeks — the fight goes on.
    >As we hatch new plans to take on the fracking industry in towns and on doorsteps, we’ll make sure you’re the first to know what’s happening.
    >In the meantime I wanted to say thank you. Thank you for everything you’ve done to get us where we are now. The movement to stop fracking is stronger than ever — and that is truly something to be proud of.
    >PS. The last 7 days will have riled the fracking industry — as things are now shifting in our favour. In the coming weeks they’ll go all out to claw the debate their way, so can you chip in to help stop fracking once and for all, throughout the UK? To quickly give £5, text FRACKNO to 70755.
