    9 arrests at the camp outside Marriotts in Clay Cross/Danesmoor, Derbyshire last night - for slow walking, which to this point has been allowed, on the grounds of "aggravated trespass", including a vulnerable young man who was later released. Obvious attempt to nobble camp which is getting growing support from the anti fracking groups and communities in the proposed SYorks/Derbyshire/Notts gasfield. Support and solidarity visits welcome.

    People getting arrested & not knowing what they're being arrested for, as they haven't been told.

    Bail conditions for those now released after the Marriotts arrests ban them from Derbyshire, "three hours to get out of the County" and such. They were held for over 20 hours in most cases. This is a clear attempt to denude the camp by the drilling company gates of activists, but the movement is determined that the Police will not succeed. The policing of the fracking protests is revealing more and more, to more and more people, how power is now exercised in Britain in an openly arbitrary and partisan manner. This is not news to longer term activists, but it is a shock to some of the young people, local community protectors and demonstrators - the raw and vicious nature of corporate power and state repression revealed.

    Those bail conditions won't stand up in court.

    LynnDoyleCooper It's a complicated world innit.

    They're really weird lock-ons. The cops could just make them stand up and move. I thought the point was you generally lock-on to a structure (barrel full of concrete/car/digger) that can't be moved...?

    And I know it's an old and grumpy thing to say, but fuck some of those people come across as really annoying.

    I've only just noticed that the coppers that have to cut the protectors free now have their own jackets with 'Protester Removal' on their backs.
     
  17. I'm pleased my tax dollar is being utilised by the state to protect the business interests and not the communities affected by this shit. :rolleyes:
     
  18. Hearts in the right place though.

    The filth aren't supposed to move you while you're in any sort of lock on because it can cause injuries. It has happened that police (or more often private heavies) have simply dragged a bunch of people out of the way while they're still locked together but it's not supposed to happen.7

    The advantage of a barrel full of concrete is more that it takes ages for them to cut you out of it, but it does also negate the risk of being dragged out of the way.
