Barton Moss 30/12/2013: Direct Action & Manchester Police



“People of Barton Moss, Irlam, Salford, Manchester, please support the Protector Camp at Barton Moss. It’s cold and hard, and they are working to defend our shared environment. Fracking is coming any week now to a field near you. What they need most is people, support on the ground. Not necessarily walking in front of lorries, but there on the sidelines, and showing that local people care. They could do with a few more bales of straw as well.”

Kathryn Metcalfe, Balcombe resident, in solidarity.

Today, the Protectors had the numbers and managed to delay the lorries by two hours. Afterwards, one of the protectors locked on to delay 8 lorries. Half the convoy.

Up close & personal with the Tactical Assault Unit (TAU) of Greater Manchester Police.
The cost of policing the iGas exploratory well-site at Barton Moss, Greater Manchester is estimated to be £40,000 per day. The style of ‘Policing’ adopted by the TAU is likely to be witnessed in multiple locations throughout 2014, as the UK Government ramps up the abomination of Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) in the UK!. ~Ian R.
