Green Party MP Caroline Lucas Arrested at Fracking Site

"Kent Green Party condemns the arrest today (19th) of Caroline Lucas, Green
MP, and her son at Balcombe, West Sussex, during the continuing protest against drilling and possible hydraulic fracking in this area

19 August 2013

 Commenting on her arrest at Balcombe today, Caroline Lucas, MP for Brighton Pavilion, said:
“Along with everyone else who took action today, I’m trying to stop a process which could cause enormous damage for decades to come.
“The evidence is clear that fracking and undermines efforts to tackle the climate crisis and poses potential risks to the local environment.
“People today, myself included, took peaceful non-violent direct action only after exhausting every other means of protest available to us.     I’m in the privileged position of being able to put questions to the Government directly and arrange debates in Parliament, but still ministers have refused to listen.
“Despite the opposition to fracking being abundantly clear, the Government has completely ignored the views of those they are supposed to represent.  When the democratic deficit is so enormous, people are left with very little option but to take peaceful, non-violent direct action.”
The Green Party has been hugely vocal in its opposition to fracking and Green MEP Keith Taylor and Green Party leader Natalie Bennett, have also visited Balcomberecently to express support for the protestors. 
Today London assembly member Jenny Jones also visited the site today to add her voice to those concerned over the lack of Government commitment to tackling climate change. 


  1. Does tackling climate change mean back to caves and candles?

    1. Climate change is a hoax, a political fraud, first announced by the Club of Rome in 1990, it's intention is to usher in dictatorial world government.

      Prominent members of the Club of Rome include Al Gore and Maurice Strong, both of whom are intimately involved with privately-owned carbon trading groups like the Chicago Climate Exchange, whose multi-million dollar profits are solely reliant on protecting the credibility of the man-made global warming thesis from skeptics who have challenged its legitimacy in light of the Climategate scandal.

      On page 75 of their 1990 publication entitled The First Global Revolution, the organization outlined how they would manufacture ecological scares in order to manipulate the public into accepting the imposition of a dictatorial world government run by them.

      “In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill…. All these dangers are caused by human intervention… The real enemy, then, is humanity itself,” states the report

      Fracking is all part of the same evil racket, it is essentially a United Nations land-grab under the Agenda 21 Treaty. To poison the environment to the point where the inhabitants must move off of the land into compact mega-cities.

      Ian, while I applaud your party's stance on fracking, you should drop the man made climate change nonsense, everyone knows that it is a scam, mate.

      Solar activity and the proximity of the moon to the earth, are the only factors that affect temperatures on this planet, nothing else. Check out the work of Piers Corbyn on youtube.

  2. Fracking is no worse than coal mining, which has caused more earthquakes and has taken the lives of many.

  3. If they want to frack under my house...bring it on! I'll take the money!

    1. You won't see any money, all you will be getting is methane poisoning.
