“Rathlin are just prospectors mining for data in the shale rock, and if they strike gold they’ll sell out to the big guys like
Total, and these two wells will just be the first of hundreds across the East Yorkshire countryside.”
Meeting with the protestors, they could express opposition to the oil and gas operations taking place a mile up the road from their village, and get organised as they prepare for a long battle to fight any plans of Fracking locally.
Villagers explained why they fought so hard to get a “no fracking” planning condition on the well site, and why they “feel the spirit of that condition is about to be broken.”
Protectors who have already given up many personal comforts told the community;
“We’re here to defend you and your community against the impacts of this industry.”
Protesters also allayed fears about litter, showing images of the former sites at Barton Moss and Balcombe after clean up.
Although no fracking is taking place at the moment if gas is found the company Rathlin Energy will resubmit new a new planning application.
Fracking has been banned in France and was recently linked to a Earth Tremor in Blackpool. Other issues faced by residents living in close to a fracking mine area is obtaining home content insurance and the possible decline of the value of your home.
