Bailiffs evict Balcombe anti-fracking protest camp

DRILL OR DROP?

West Sussex County Council used bailiffs today (19/11/13) to clear the protest camp which has been outside Cuadrilla’s exploration site at Balcombe since July.

A statement by the council said: “As promised during the High Court hearing we have established a new designated protest area close to the entrance to the Cuadrilla site, and the siting of it was agreed with the protesters who have remained in the area. The protest area is bigger and on drier land and is also protected by safety barriers. This does clearly show that the County Council recognises the right of people to demonstrate peacefully and lawfully. However, it is important that people realise that any form of camping inside this area is not permitted.”

Frack Free Sussex said: “In enforcing the eviction order at Balcombe today, is West Sussex County Council protecting Sussex residents and Sussex ecology – or the interests of international industry/invested government?”
