We attended the Solidarity March at Barton Moss on 8th December. We joined a variety of groups from across the north of England to oppose I-Gas’s drilling project and to show solidarity with the protest camp. Environmental campaigners, trade unionists and local politicians came together for a day of protest and networking.
After series of engaging speakers – several of whom referred to the Campaign Against Climate Change’s ‘One Million Climate Jobs’ campaign-, we walked to the site of drilling. While the samba band played and activists rattled the gates of the site, I-Gas’s security guards brought a digger up to reinforce the defences!
It was a positive day that helped to build the movement against drilling in the North West.
