If you want to get some idea of what’s involved with a drill site convoy arriving in your village, watch at 4 minutes onwards.
Contaminating aquifers is said to be lawful by the Police, carrying out the corporate agenda. West Newton in Yorkshire. Local people are shocked by the scale of the invasion.
Planning conditions are ignored. Local Authorities are told whatever they want to hear, as are local communities to get planning permission. The Police sent twenty officers per protector. It’s an isolated site. Miles from any town. 100 officers. 3 protestors. Overkill response. Raflin Energy were obviously lying saying they won’t frack.
They are turning this country into an industrial wasteland. Drilling is about to begin. Lights on 24 hours. Noise 24 hours. Pollution. Traffic. Poisoning of water, soil and air. 2nd July 2014.
The mainstream media were prevented from observing the installation. The local population has a massive role to play. If the public start reacting, investors will start to get cold feet.
In this case residents reacted after the event. Pity. Other towns in the East Riding like Beverley nearby seem to be waking up fast. As Ian says, there will be eight wells per square mile, with enough gas to extract for thirty years.
The water, the air and the soil will be contaminated with appalling negative health impact on the communities around. 70% of voters are against fracking in the UK. If Labour go anti-fracking, they’ll get a landslide, says Ian.
