Protectors using the Public Footpath: Pedestrians have right of way.

A long night was spent ensuring the safety of the camp, in 100mph winds. Unfortunately, the Tech Tent / Tea Tent was lost to the elements. This was the communal tent where people spent time away from the wind and rain, while still being able to see onto the path.

At 0830hours, the Barton Moss Protectors were able to stop the iGas trucks from using and damaging the Barton Moss “Road” Public Footpath.

Stopping the iGas Trucks from using the Public Footpath. 0830hours on the Thursday morning.

Local people donating omelette and salad to the Protectors.

Escorting the red truck. License Plate JU57 SPL. The protectors agreed to let this lorry in, as it was blocking public access to the footpath.

Update: 1639hours. iGas Trucks are leaving.

It was worth freezing, It was worth getting battered by cops, It was worth the bruising, It was worth time in the cells, It was worth a criminal record, It was worth being exhausted, It was worth ill health, It was worth all of it, just to know we made those lorries leave!!!!!!!! ~Tammy Samede.
