Many fracking protests are not peaceful, lawful or local, says Cuadrilla: untrue say Lancs campaigners

So in yesterday’s news, a company part owned by a fund set up in a secrecy jurisdiction and part owned by an Australian company (which itself is Chinese owned), which employs police from different regions of the UK (including one where fracking has a moratorium), complains that some of the protestors are not local.
The Irish CEO of said company has never been known to visit the site.
His security men recently assaulted two of the protectors, we resist non-violently, yet he claims our protests are not peaceful.
Finally there is a lack of understanding of what lawful protest is. This is ridiculous given the nature of his climate crimes.
We will hold you to account for your lies Mr. Egan.
