SALFORD SOLIDARITY DAY WITH ANTI FRACKING PROTECTORS
 

Star date: 5th January 2013

BARTON MOSS RALLY AND MARCH AGAINST FRACKING

Solidarity Day
Sunday 12th January 12:30pm
Barton Moss Lane

There's going to be a big Solidarity Day next Sunday, where there'll be a march and rally in support of the Barton Moss Community Protection Camp. There'll be speakers, music and people are being asked to bring placards and banners showing loads of local support.

For further details of this and other activities click here…


As the number of arrests by Greater Manchester Police increases and, as pregnant, disabled, elderly people and even children are targeted on the protests (see video – click here), a Solidarity Day has been called for next Sunday 12th January.

With the national right wing press stating that there is little local sympathy for the Barton Moss Community Protection Camp, those who attend - particularly those from Salford - are being asked to make placards and banners showing their support.

There will be a rally with speakers, followed by a short march up Barton Moss Road to the Camp and the entrance to the IGas exploratory drilling site. The day starts at 12:30pm and meets at the lay-by on Liverpool Road at the conrer of Barton Moss Lane M30 7RL – next turnoff after Barton Airport.

In the meantime, as deliveries to the site become more frequent people are asked to join the daily demonstrations aiming to delay lorries delivering to the IGas site (usually around 9:30am at Barton Moss Road).

This Tuesday 7th January, at 7pm, there's a general meeting of the Frack Free Greater Manchester Campaign at Eccles Friends Meeting House, The Polygon, Wellington Rd, Eccles M30 0DS at which everyone is welcome.

On Wednesday 15th January there will be lobby of Salford City Council, between 8:30am and 9:30am, outside Swinton Town Hall, Chorley Road, Swinton to ram home to the Mayor and his councillors that no-one wants fracking in Salford.

And on Saturday 25th January, 12noon-3pm (venue tba) the National Meeting of the Campaign against Climate Change Trade Union Group is to be held in Salford as a mark of solidarity with the Barton Moss Campaign – further details to follow.

Greater Manchester Police & Crime Commissioner in political bias role Greater Manchester Police and Crime Commissioner in political bias role Greater Manchester Police & Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd has been accused of political bias after he was seen canvassing for the Labour Party in Swinton. In recent days Greater Manchester Police have been seriously criticised for their heavy tactics against peaceful protesters at the Barton Moss fracking site in Salford with campaigners protesting outside Swinton Police station. Peter Cranie, the Lead candidate for the Green Party in the 2014 European elections next May wrote to Greater Manchester Police requesting that stretched policing resources were used to combat increasing serious crime in the city and not used against peaceful protestors. It is reported today, that Greater Manchester Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd was seen canvassing in Swinton for the Labour Party. A resident who did not want to be named believed it was wrong that whilst in post Tony Lloyd involves himself in electioneering whilst holding the most senior position within Greater Manchester Police.
