Throughout winter the Barton Moss Community Protection Camp has brought imaginative community campaigning to Salford - peaceful, lawful, fun and planet friendly.

They delivered `presents' of a wind turbine and a big orange bus to the IGas drilling site - unfortunately the police don't get it. Salford does!

Thanks for your Constant Cover of Meaningful Issues in Our Beautiful City,not the Advertiser,MEN,BBC,Salford City Radio,IN Salford cover the Heartfelt Subject Matter that the infamous Salford.The Star is Truly The Voice of Salford as only the Star listens to "The People" of Salford. It has also empowered many people around the city to report on their own experiences which is all important when retaining the True History of a region.. None of the old "History is Written By The Winners" from the past as has happened for centuries .... We are Blessed to have The Salford Star in this City... All the Best for the Future to Everyone involved and all its Supporters...)))

Happy Christmas and thank you SS for the information, both horrendous, illuminating and often amusing that you have brought us since last Christmas. Your reporting has meant hours of researching at meetings, pouring over dry but significant Council Minutes and now up early to vist the Anti Fracking Camp to stand in the cold with all those dedicated campaigners to bring us the latest news and pictures. Your commitment is awesome (as the young would say). You certainly beat the MEN for real news and the BBC for the real truth. I award you the Mary Burns 'Mag of the Year ' ..... Sidter/ brother to Private Eye. Keep prying for us in 2014!

Thank you Salford star,and Chaz. This will mean a lot to camp.Ive been a few times and they are lovely people. Many local and some who have come from other areas to help protect the area.I'm from Tameside.The fracking issue had somehow passed me by for ages but when i did my research (loads of it),i was horrified at what they want to do to the northwest and the very real risk to our water supply.I went to camp on my own,not knowing anyone & was made very welcome. I have been on one march in front of the trucks, and let me tell you, it was exhausting and bewildering,mainly due to the way we were treated by GMP. I have not had any police dealings before and I was so embarrassed by their heavy handedness,not good PR for our beloved city. I was glad to get home to a hot bath,feeling quite upset.I am now determined to go as much as i can and have met up with the local Mums who are supporting! I have so much respect for the people camping there and enduring that treatment, not because they enjoy camping on a dirt road and being pushed about or being portrayed as rentamob, but because they care about all of our futures. THANK YOU! xxxxxx

Brilliantly put Salford Star...Happy Christmas to the Star and thanks for a really brilliant year of backing us Salfordians to the hilt, I've seen SO many BBC news blackouts this year that I've completely and utterly lost faith in the mainstream media...I'll never lose faith in my Star XXXX And Happy Christmas to those awesome beautiful people freezing down at the Protection Camp this Christmas instead of being with their loved ones. Me nor my Salfordian family can ever pay you back enough for what you are doing, so much respect and love to you all and heres to smashing those despicable foul fracking people next year :) XXXX
