Day 89 – Sun 23rd February
The Gig at the Rig went off! There was an estimated 250 people from all over the country,enjoying the music, poetry and speeches. The event was a peaceful one which may or may not have had something to do with the absence of the police. As the party starts to wind down, the protectors will be turning their thougths to tomorrow’s convoy.
Day 87 – Fri 21st February
The Barton Moss Protection Camp is set to continue as the court case earlier today was adjourned until March the 6th. Peel Holdings had issued an immediate possession order on the land next to Barton Moss lane, wanting to remove protectors this Sunday.
At the camp this morning there was another fantastic turn out to greet and escort the iGas convoy. However the police were up to their usual tricks with at least one reported arrest of a young girl.
Sunday is also the day of Gig at the Rig, starting at 1:30pm. See the Manchester Evening News for more details here. It’s going to be a busy one, even the Judge mentioned it in court today.
