Controversial fracking company Cuadrilla awoke on Wednesday 28 November to find its Wikipedia page looking a bit different.

The company has been courting controversy for quite a while now. It’s been the subject of countless demos, political criticism and campaigns. But now, one campaigner has decided to engage in some ‘hacktivism’. And the results are perfect.

As “Rewild and Rebel” put out on Twitter:

"Cuadrilla's wikipedia page has been reworked today, to tell the truth about the horrors perpetuated on the community of Preston New Road by Cuadrilla and CEO Francis Egan"

The account is run by Dr Al Williams, who has a PhD in biochemistry and is currently a masters student doing an MSc in Sustainable Food and Natural Resource at the Centre for Alternative Technology in Machynlleth, Wales.

His reworking was still live as of 2pm on Wednesday 28 November. Here it is in all its glorious detail:

As basically stated at the bottom of the article, hopefully this could set a precedent to fight back against all steamrollering tactics with various authorities in cahoots in face of local opposition (and evidence).

I guess Cuadrilla were fracked off about this amendment to their 'site' and hopefully they will have some idea how their opponents feel over what is being done to their immediate environment and call it a day asap.
