An appeal by anti-fracking protestors has been made for people to observe any attempt at an forced eviction from a protest camp tomorrow.

Yesterday we wrote how an attempt was made to serve a court summons on protestors in Borras, with an eviction hearing tomorrow in Manchester.

A video of Shay Brightman, one of the protestors or ‘protectors’, has been released today appealing for people to attend the site tomorrow as bailiffs are expected any time after the 10:30am hearing to evict them from the site.

The request is for people to ‘peacefully and legally’ observe, with filming encouraged, from the early morning onwards. People are asked to ‘stay safe, stay out of the way, but please be here’.

The hearing in Manchester is set for 10:30am and if it goes against the protestors there is no firm timeframe for when an eviction would be attempted, however we are told that services involved historically favour a ‘same day clearance’.
