AFGHANISTAN ANTI FRACKERS SEND MESSAGE TO SALFORD
 

Star date: 26th January 2014

ANTI-FRACKING MESSAGE TO BARTON MOSS FROM KABUL AND SALFORD 

`Salam 'aleikum from Afghanistan!'

As a big rally takes place today at Barton Moss in support of anti-fracking protectors, YouTube messages are becoming an increasing feature of the campaign, with the latest coming in from Afghanistan…and Salford.

Meanwhile, a YouTube message to Salford Council from those camped out on the Civic Centre lawn has also gone on show.

`We are with you Barton Moss'

As hundreds of people from all over the country descend on Barton Moss this afternoon, a message of support from Afghanistan has been sent via YouTube.

Filmed in Kabul by the Afghan Peace Volunteers and two UK activists, Ewa and Maya, with no electricity at their office, the message in English and Afghan, says…

"Salam 'aleikum from Afghanistan!
We don't want trashy weather or water.
We want a world filled with love.

We want friendship.
We don't want war.
We want peace.
Borderfree!

We don't want a dominating power.
Fracking will cause the earth's destruction.
We are with you, Barton Moss!
No fracking!
We are with you, Barton Moss!"

Meanwhile, Salford mum and artist Fanny Gogh posted a direct message to David Cameron via YouTube… "I am asking you…I'm challenging you to come down and meet me at Barton Moss right next to the fracking site and look me in the eye and tell me that you 110% believe that this won't harm the land where I live and harm my children and your children…come down and explain to everyone that it's safe. We need to know…"

…And another message by Dan from Barton Moss Community Protection Camp was also put up on YouTube yesterday, explaining why there has been a vigil on the lawn of Salford City Council Civic Centre for eleven days…

"The protest vigil has one simple message" says Dan "That the Council is failing in its duty to protect their constituents. They've failed to make IGas fulfil an Environment Impact Assessment which is completely unacceptable given the grave dangers that fracking brings.

"If we're talking about such a controversial industry with such risks attached to the process of fracturing why was there no Environmental Impact Assessment carried out?" he asks "Why was there not proper liaison with the community surrounding the area? Why was nobody consulted thoroughly and properly? Why does the community surrounding Barton Moss Road feel completely left out of the decision making process?

"Our message to Salford City Council is this" Dan concludes "Democracy is not for sale and bribes will not work here. It doesn't matter if you accept the recent Government bribes of £100,000 and 100% of business rates…they pale into in comparison with the amount this Council has cut for core services, health, housing, benefits... The people say `No! Not here, not anywhere'…"
