The government thinks it can violate a small Yorkshire village. Drone footage shows it’s wrong.

NOVEMBER 5TH, 2017 Steve Topple

Drone footage has emerged of the biggest demonstration a quiet Yorkshire village may have ever seen. And it shows that residents and campaigners will not tolerate the government trampling over their rights.

Another site, another fracking company

The government has granted Third Energy a licence to extract shale gas (fracking) at the KM8 site, in the village of Kirby Misperton in North Yorkshire. The county council granted Third Energy planning permission in May 2016, but local residents and Friends of the Earth went to the High Court to challenge the decision in December.

But the judge ruled in Third Energy’s favour, and work has been progressing to prepare the site ever since.

Meanwhile, residents and campaigners set up the Kirby Misperton Protection Camp. It aims to highlight the opposition to fracking that exists in the area. Demonstrations have been ongoing since the start of the year.

And on 4 November, campaigners organised a mass trade union rally to the site.

Don’t frack us

Members of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT), Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS), Unite and the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) held a rally from the village hall to the gates of the KM8 site. And as drone footage shows, the event was a success:

I`m totally against Fracking and the rich becoming richer off the back of promises that it would mean cheaper bills. Total RUBBISH! The Scottish Tries recently said that the Scottish Governments decision to BAN fracking in Scotland was a decision that would impact on jobs. JOBS? What about the bloody landscape and the destruction of waterways and all the other `unknowns` they don`t tell us about? This is just another get rich quick scheme for the all those at the top while the rest of us never see any benefits at all. Don`t fall for it. I'm more for green energy and even that hasn`t been off to the best start because it`s probably been mismanaged.
