Dear Tony Lloyd,
The protesters at Barton Moss are peaceful activists, passionate to protect the environment and stop a process happening. Increasing evidence suggests Fracking is extremely harmful to our environment and on the people in the vicinity.
The Manchester Peoples Assembly notes the bullying and brutal tactics used by GMP today 15/02/2014 against peaceful protesters at Barton Moss Protection Camp. It is also increasingly evident that the GMP do not work in the interest of protecting the public but instead are clearly there today to protect corporate interest
It is alarming that the public sector employees who are paid for by us, the tax payers, have seemingly lost all sense of perspective.
