Geopolitical analyst, former oil/gas industry insider Ian R. Crane, with his human rights advocate guest Tina Louise, have reported on how to manage increased police aggression toward rights defenders protesting fracking, after a three-month protest at Barton Moss Protection Camp.
The interview (in the video at the end of this article) follows a landmark court ruling in which Barton Moss Road was deemed to be a footpath, thus inappropriate for fracking trucks to use, and police officers subsequently becoming more brutal in their defense of corporate frackers.

The preaceful Barton Moss protectors have been well organized. For example, they send messages through their Facebook page, such as:
“If you knew they planned to poison your water, what would you do?” - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/10520735/Fracking-chemicals-could-cause-infertility-cancer-and-birth-defects.html. Come and talk to us and find out what you can do x
“People have been shoved and kicked in the back, crushed together struggling to walk or breathe as two lines of police and TAU aggressively pushed us down the footpath,” an account from a day of protesting reads. “Two protectors sat down on the ground in protest (later arrested) and if not for our front line protectors they would have been trampled by the GMP.”
Last weekend, however, as protests continued, even after the court ruled the frackers were not to use the footpath as a highway, police aggression against the protection campers increased. Police officers insisted that protesters were still liable for arrest for “aggravated trespass” on a public footpath.
A 15-year-old female youth was arrested last weekend for aggravated trespassing. She was holding her grandmother’s arm, as they peacefully defended Barton Moss from fracking semi-trailers and scores of police defending corporate frackers’ interests.
“We will be dying in the streets, like our brothers and sisters in Kiev soon unless we put our feet down NOW and get our own police force and politics under control,” commented Ellis Cain afterwards. “Be disgusted, get angry, don’t take this!”
Crane and Tina Louise, however, say protesters need to be well prepared with tools: skills and know-how to survive corporare-government’s police.
Another person police assaulted last weekend was a mother of five children. Police left her unable to walk, lying on the ground crying in pain for an hour, refusing her medical treatment. She was later hospitalized three days due to her injuries.
Finally, this weekend, the protectors found peace at the site.
“So beautifully peaceful, full of joy and warm humanity yesterday,” Tina Louise commented on the protectors’ Facebook page. “The absence of police made this possible. Hoping to make it for early tomorrow and hoping today is not brutal and cruel for Protectors xxx.”
Now, armed with first-hand experience, Crane and Tina Louise discuss (in the video directly below) challenges to communities globally at risk of being fracked. They discuss steps communities need to take to mount an effective resistance against what Crane calls “the socio-psychopathic global corporatist Mother-Frackers.”
