Anti Fracking Activists Train Ahead Of Balcombe Protests

Climate activists are gearing up for 48 hours of direct action against energy firm Cuadrilla, which is carrying out test oil drilling in West Sussex. During the 6 day camp by protesters, Cuadrilla has suspended drilling.

Campaigners fear that the oil drilling could lead to hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking - the process of drilling down into the earth and fracturing rocks with a high pressure liquid to release the gas inside.

A march involving over 1,000 protesters took place over the weekend, with the BBC reporting that protesters at the Reclaim the Power camp at Balcombe, West Sussex have been learning how to use metal tripods to scale heights in readiness for further action. (Source: BBC News)
