Fracking Yorkshire: Rathlin Energy`s Plans Revealed
For anyone wanting to know where the info that the Frackers will probably be moving a drill rig onto the West Newton site in Hull on the 15 or 16 May came from – Frack-free Hull have discovered that the permit to undertake mini-fracking for shale gas was granted to Rathlin on the 1 May. Rathlin will need to give the council 14 days notice before setting up the rig. So Hull believe as there is a ‘no-fracking clause’ on the Crawberry Hill site Rathlin will start at West Newton whilst they get the clause overturned for Crawberry Hill. Frack-free Hull don`t believe the Frackers would waste any time, which is why they think the rig will probably arrive at West Newton on the 15 or 16 May. ~ Alina Winterfell Friedman
Justice for Barton Moss Protectors.
Manchester Magistrates Court trials for Protectors arrested at Barton Moss for ‘Obstruction of a Police Constable in the course of their Duty’, Judge Quereshi said, “I find the Crown’s case had fundamental errors and I find it astonishing that the Crown did not bring the correct Officers to Court.”
CASE DISMISSED against Lisa Haywood, Peter Boyarin & Dave Davies.
An outstanding performance by Barrister Richard Brigden & Rachel Andrews of Robert Lizars (Solicitors)
3 more of the protectors – Pete, Lisa and David – had their cases dismissed in court today with charges of obstructing a police officer during one of our many peaceful marches! Decision was made early this morning on the second day of a two day trial after hearing the prosecution the day before. Despite 6 police officers testifying against them not a single defense witness was called due to the case having so little evidence! Justice prevails again for Barton Moss! We are winning! ~ Alina Winterfell Friedman of Barton Moss Community Protection Camp
