Myself (Louise Hammond) and Jane Rowbottom have just got back from Upton protection camp against fracking near Chester.
We spent a month camping in a field supporting (on behalf of Lincolnshire) Upton (anti fracking camp), the fracking company (igas)have wanted to access this field for over 18 months. Without this camp igas would be in the second stages of fracking by now in this field. Upton protection camp is still resisting igas.
What we have learnt from this camp is that one way to stop these fracking companies in Lincolnshire is to get to the field before them. If this is not possible the only option we have to monitor the violations they will make(and not tell locals) is to camp at the roadside next to the rig and video everything (as was seen at Kiln Lane near Immingham) The only violations that were reported at Kiln Lane were by us.
I now shout out to Lincolnshire residents to support us as we organise our next camp (details will follow also Facebook page for the camp )….NO FRACKING ANYWHERE,,,
