Anti Fracking Protector Camps

    taffboy gwyrdd Embrace the confusion!

    The challenges of bridge building between traditional left/anarchist/green campaigners and the more conspiracy-schooled is not going to go away. Personally I think much of it would be surmountable but for stubborn-ness on both sides. The roots of such stubborness are kind of curious. If either camp knew so much about what to do and how to do it then we wouldn't where we are.

  2. Worker led revolutions are a thing though, they've happened before and can happen again. Truthers have no such road map leaving them to cling to the fringes of both ends of the spectrum.

    Anyone know of an overtly anti-conspiraloon network for organising against fracking? Everywhere I go there's Ian R Crane and his minions spreading rancid goat shit all over everything.

    Red Sky It was like that when I got here.

    Frack Off aren't a bunch of conspiraloons.

    GMB union press release 20.03.17 calls for crackdown on fracking activists:

    Netpol response: Police and fracking companies – STILL in each other’s pockets
    As a GMB workplace Rep, I'm absolutely fuckin' appalled by this, seething! Yet again, a GMB Gen Sec riding rough shod with big business. Radio silence on twitter as of yet. Can I urge any GMB (or other union members) to tweet, email... Police violence against climate activists is well documented, yet my union wants to propel this fucking violence.

    Fuck you Tim Roache! :mad:

    Yes, GMB members really need to get a grip on the public image of their union, now also apparently a major player in trying to prevent any change in Labour Party leadership election arrangements to try and prevent any left wing successor to Corbyn....

    Members getting a grip? Yep, around the throat of their Gen Sec!

    Good summary from Frack Off of the struggle brewing as INEOS and their military contractor friends prepare to "invade" the former coalfield areas of North East Derbyshire, North West Notts and South Yorkshire to seismic test for fracking:

    Its depressing how little coverage these anti-fracking protests get. 4 arrested today according to BBC news but bloody hell you have to dig around on that site to find out whats going on.

    Good luck to you lot.

    There is a high level of know-it-all males in both camps. A category of human not known for conciliatory, consensus forming.

    All heating up at Preston New Road in Lancs and outside Marriotts at Danesmoor, Clay Cross in Derbyshire as Cuadrilla prepare to move rig from Marriotts to their Lancs site. 13 person lock on today involving locals and councillors. Increasingly vicious policing, Marriotts staff telling barefaced lies to camera and thug-vigilante-gangster haulage contractor Pete Marquis and his knuckle dragging mates joining in (apparently trying to knock down protest towers with people still inside or nearby? If you can get to either site in next 24 to 48 hours your solidarity will be most welcome in the battle against this filthy industry and its corrupt backers in government and authorities.

    Female anti-fracking protester in Derbyshire hurled to the ground by bang out of order copper, who then attacks the person videoing his actions. :mad:

    This morning Police mysteriously absent as large gang of site security at Preston New Road site violently assaulted protesters. Along with them allowing local dodgy haulage contractors thugs to demolish one of the protest towers last night (Pete Marquis actually alleges the police "hired him for the job", despite this being deliberately inflammatory as he and his firm are loathed by the anti frackers) this is growing evidence of Police-corporate collusion with no pretence of impartiality and no regard to public safety. Serious questions need to be asked about Lancs Police chain of command and who is pulling their strings.....

    Reclaim The Power news release about site security staff violence against protesters outside the site at Preston New Road:
    DEMONSTRATOR RESTRAINED AND PUNCHED BY FRACKING SITE MANAGER
    In addition supporters of the anti fracking camp outside the Clay Cross drill firm supplying both Cuadrilla and INEOS in Lancashire and the East Mids/South Yorks have had eggs thrown at them and been fired on (air rifle?) by pro fracking thugs.
    The haulage contractor Pete Marquis is a well known meathead with a gang of boneheaded employees/mates, who has been spotted posting underneath Britain First Facebook posts........
