Here is one that appeared on our doorstep only yesterday, and the leaflet they asked me to write, the text as they spoke their purpose to me.
We set up camp at Brooklands Farm on the 23rd July at 6 pm, and declared the field containing Dart Energy’s targeted drill site as ‘occupied’ under Section 6 of the Public Order Act.
We’re an independent environmental group here to protect Shropshire people.
We’re Shropshire people ourselves from different parts of the county, including places like Whittington, with previous experience helping to stop the destruction of communities and beautiful environments in Sussex, Chester and Manchester.
Anyone is welcome to ‘pop in’ and talk to to us. We’re using a tiny space in the corner of the field, keeping everything tidy and clean.
We want to meet you.
If you want one of us to attend local meetings and talk about what we do, we’re very happy to come along. Just let us know.
We can explain what we have learned from our previous experiences fighting ‘unconventional gas extraction’ in other threatened areas.
North Shropshire is too beautiful to be sacrificed. The huge Shropshire aquifer which starts right under our feet, is under threat.
As are farm animals.
and the health of people living around this area.
Come and see us.
Our fight is your fight.
