Since 2011 fracking is looming over Ireland. After years of informing people, writing letters, demonstrations, direct actions, taken legal actions, it seems that politicians and the big companies doesn’t care. Democracy and human rights are dead words.
At present the first rig in (Northern) Ireland has arrivedand and is transported to Woodburn
forest (and sticks into the mud). Infrastrata will start testdrilling near a waterreservoir, supplying water for the entire Belfast eara. Despite scientific evidence, that fracking can not be done safe and often pollutes the water, the greed and ignorance seems to be unlimited, putting peoples health at risk.

A legal action was succesfull, but despite this, the lorries are still driving into Woodburn forest.
A protestor had chained himself to the rig,
Upcoming Friday is the court case of another protestor related to the Belcoo protest.
