Green Party offers “full support” to veteran anti-fracking campaigner arrested at Cuadrilla’s shale gas site
Tina Rothery, a long-standing opponent of fracking, has been arrested outside Cuadrilla’s shale gas site at Preston New Road near Blackpool.
Council officials are investigating how a gas well in Cheshire was drilled to a depth more than double that referred to in the planning consent.
Many fracking protests are not peaceful, lawful or local, says Cuadrilla: untrue say Lancs campaigners
The shale gas company, Cuadrilla, said today many of the protests at its site near Blackpool were by a “small hard-core” of national activists and were neither peaceful nor lawful.
An indigenous leader who opposed the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock in the US urged anti-fracking campaigners in Lancashire today to “let go of their fears”.
The Green Party is calling on the shale gas company, Cuadrilla, to answer allegations of violence by security guards and staff against protesters at its site near Blackpool.
As expected, the Green Party has promised to replace fracking, coal-fired power stations and nuclear with renewables.
