Still Wondering Why The UK Government Is Determined To Frack

Still Wondering Why The UK Government Is Willing To Frack The Hell Out Of Us Despite Overwhelming Evidence Of The Horrendous Dangers?

Still Wondering Why The UK Government Is Willing To Frack The Hell Out Of Us Despite Overwhelming Evidence Of The Horrendous Dangers?

Is this not conclusive evidence that the Government in the UK has agreed to Hydraulic Fracking, (when so many other countries have rejected it) strictly for their own gains.  Not only the government, look at the banks, coporations and other bodies involved in this mass ecocide/genocide toxic soup.

WAKE UP PEOPLE … TELL THEM ALL NO FRACKING NOT HERE NOT NOW NOT EVER … SPEAK UP WHILE SPEECH IS JUST ABOUT STILL LEGAL IN THE UK!!!

FURTHER UPDATED INFORMATION ON THIS STORY FROM FRACK-OFF

The fracking interests at the heart of UK government:

* Lord Browne – Chairman of Cuadrilla Resources – installed by David Cameron’s Government as “lead non-executive director” at the Cabinet Office

* Ben Moxham – ex-Riverstone Vice President (who own a large chunk of Cuadrilla) – Cameron’s Energy Advisor from 2011-2013

* Tara Singh – former Centrica lobbyist (who invested in Cuadrilla a month after her appointment) – replaced Moxham in May 2013

* Baroness Hogg – non-executive at BG Group (who own substantial fracking interests in the US) – non-executive director at the Treasury

Will The Barton Blockade Happen Come September

Can we save this land from the horror of being fractured and poisened

By Colin Gong  (Please click link to go to original posts and comments and Facebook)

So the Ligas activity has pretty much abated for the time being and the dust has settled , and it is the last night on the moss for Olive and I  …. we are poised ready to lift our anchor in the morning and set sails back towards our ‘normal’ life.

For the last 4 months our life has been pretty much spent on the moss so it has been home for us for this while , and we have done all we could see to do to defend it during our time here . It has been a pleasure and a privilege to stand with all you people here , locals and migrants alike .

With the easing of the intensity over these last days I have been assimilating and reviewing where things are now placed , in terms of the struggle to save this land from the horror of being fractured and poisoned .

All the signs we can read say that are igas are lining themselves up to return later in the year , and have their sights firmly set on doing what to me , and to many others , is simply unthinkable .

And sadly there are no signs visible that say Salford Council , our Government , the EA or the HSE are going to do anything other than be complicit with Igas in the crime of wilful ecocide .

So from where I am looking , right now the mosses and the communities around them are looking very very vunerable to the unthinkable – to having the living daylight fracked out of them .

Seeing this , I feel far from easy with leaving the area at this juncture… … but we have to go – the circumstances of life do not give us an option to stay.  To moderate my dis ease at having to leave , I air these questions for the thinkers and strategists of the campaign , which must surely be ongoing :

What is going to happen when they return?

In the light of all recent evidence it would be niave or foolish to think the Government or the Council or EA or HSE might suddenly start doing their job properly and protect the mosses and the communities around them ….

….so who or what is going to protect when the frackers return? …

We can be fairly confident that Peel and Igas between them will make sure that a camp of incoming migrants can not land so easily this time … and who knows how many of them will be in a position to return then anyway? – other campaigns , jobs , some even in prison?

So the main thrust of the next phase will need a LOT more local people to be stirred and ready to act… the numbers of active locals who are sufficiently aware of the nature of the threat to be willing to stand (or sit) on the B M Road in defence of the community has slowly but surely risen over the course of the last 5 months …
….but it is still so far sure of where it will need to be in 5 or 6 months time .

How many would it take anyway ? 500? , 1,000? , 3,000?

Will the threat of fracking mean enough , to enough local folk by then ? … will the rising awareness have arisen enough by then?  …. can we just sit back and hope/trust that will have happened by the time the frackers return? ….
or again , in the light of recent evidence , is that a naive and foolish way to go?

I have to say that if we were more ‘rooted’ here , and were set to be living here this year and next year and the one after , I don’t think I would be resting for more than a minute just now ….
….I would be calling together as a matter of urgency the biggest group of committed strategic thinkers I could muster …
… to ask the questions and brain-storm them , ‘how can enough local folk be sufficiently be informed and stirred so they are ready to step forwards to protect the community when the frackers return?’ ….

The Bentley Blockade is currently happening in Oz ….

And I think it may well come down to a point where NOTHING else is going to protect the Mosses and the nearby communities from the onslaught of this insanity , apart from the people of those communities themselves..

The BARTON BLOCKADE may well need to happen …

… and I don’t see it is going to happen out of nowhere … people get ready ….

Of course we will come if we possibly can .

When The Earth Dies, You Will Die Too

"Someday the earth will weep, she will beg for her life, she will cry with tears of blood. You will make a choice, if you will help her or let her die, and when she dies, you too will die." John Hollow Horn of the Oglala Lakota tribe (1932).

In a highly evolved society, we wouldn’t even consider a technology that is harmful to life – especially human life – but we’re clearly not evolved as a species. Technology has finally outrun common sense, and respect…

What am I speaking about? The birth and recent boom of Hydraulic FRACKING, despite the active protests of many world citizens against it.

It is painfully self-evident to residents living near fracking wells that their water was safe to drink BEFORE the fracking companies turned up. After fracking, metals including arsenic, selenium and strontium made their way into the drinking water, and their lives were irrevocably harmed.

Listen to the hard-hitting interview with Carol Jean Moten on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=5MPsw_rfDew

Water is our most precious gift. Let us make no mistake.

Our beautiful, blue planet is made up of vast oceans, lakes, rivers and streams. Our bodies are, similarly, made up of internal oceans and rivers that supply us with the vital energy we need to live. Indeed, all of the human body’s functions depend upon the “life-giving” properties of water:

“Every function of the body is monitored and pegged to be efficient flow of water. ‘Water distribution’ is the only way of making sure that not only an adequate amount of water, but it’s transported elements, hormones, chemical messages and nutrients, first reach the more vital organs.” Dr. Batmanghelid

Now we want to inject lethal poison directly into our veins as we allow the Oil and Gas Industry blight our landscape and poison our water.

If there’s any chance of man-made technology harming that which we call life, life should take precedence over commercial interests. It’s that simple!

Humanity, stand up for your right to live a life free from harm, and from fear. We must say ‘no’, and keep saying ‘no’, to those decisions which are clearly not in our best interests.

We have brilliant minds who can create green energy solutions but our governments aren’t listening…

Fracking is a core issue. It represents the fight of the people and Mother Earth (you and me), against the greed of government and the big corporations.

We’ve been conditioned not to rock the boat – to not cause a fuss – but if we don’t ROCK THIS BOAT, then our BOAT IS GOING TO GO UNDER IN A VERY DRAMATIC WAY.

“Like” and share this message to keep hope alive – let’s turn “activism” into “education”! And let’s stop the Ecocide once and for all!
