GREATGASGALA: CAMP BAT. WISBOROUGH GREEN NEW PROTECTION CAMP.
From Ernie Neil: Balcombe Vigil
‘The Vigil’ is now famous…on the news tonight BBC South Today. They turned up due to Greenpeace’s legal action against Fracking. The reporter actually refered to it as ‘The Vigil”.
From Vanessa Vine: Frack Free Sussex and BIFF
For anybody interested, I was asked to speak about the UK fracking story at the “Unfracked – why shale gas should stay in the ground” conference in the EU Parliament in Brussels last month. It was Livestreamed to the geodome on camp by Graeme, but it coincided directly with Jamie’s tripod initiative, so I don’t know if anyone saw it.
I made at least one mistake (microcosm not macrocosm) and some infuriating omissions (didn’t acknowledge Frack Off for their intrinsic role throughout and for being in it before any of us were for a start) but did my best under time pressure (made my notes during previous speaker) in an extraordinary situation.

All the precise locations are on the W.S.C.C website – planning section. Boxal Bridge is halfway between Wisborough Green and Kirdford, the drill site is just west of the bridge (orange plan’ notice on gate). The camp is half a mile west further on.
