Watch this short film about the way the police target disabled people at protests

Frack site: The well in Lancashire contributes to global warming and climate change.

It seems I have opened a can of worms with This Site’s article about Lancashire police reporting disabled anti-fracking protesters to the Department for Work and Pensions.

I have been contacted by a representative of Gathering Place Films, which has been filming over the past five years for a long form documentary about fracking in the UK. This person told me, “What we have observed while filming, around the policing of this movement, has been quite surprising.”

The film is entitled Targeting Protesters and its publicity material states: “The police have identified and targeted prominent anti-fracking campaigners, key protest organisers and invariably protesters with disabilities – in order to undermine or neutralise their effectiveness in challenging the interests of the shale oil and gas industry.”

    Stopping them for travelling with a tri-pod? They fit in a car so why not stop every car with the same stupid remark?
    If a person is arrested and is the disabled person using a motability car for their own purpose i.e. to legally peacefully protest, it has nothing to do with motability. It’s more about is the vehicle been used for the disabled person, are they present? IMHO this is a clear case of abuse of power by the police.

    good, this needs to be publicised as it shows the tory as they normally are, I remember the miner’s strike and they used the police for there own macabre ways then

    Extremely concerning state of affairs where “our” police force is morphing into Government state hit men using all forms of identification and tracking to prevent legal protests to aid their fracking friends to carry out their business trashing our environment and essential water supplies. Hope they get a good donation from these same enemies of the people for their political funds using the peoples public services for such acts. As usual the media is carrying out the globalists masters wishes by not bringing these police state tactics to a wider public knowledge. Lastly what sort of policemen and women do we now employ who morally see nothing wrong in carrying out Government orders against the people that actually pay their wages and future pensions.. they are public servants.

    I think it’s fair to say that the police are no longer available to “protect and serve” but institute levels of Lebensraum by discriminating against disabled protesters. Someone needs to send the Police Academy a dictionary so they can understand the words listed below.
    Nefarious (conduct)
    Integrity(or lack thereof)
    Abuse(in all it’s applications)
    ……..there are hundreds more to add to this list, but I think it’s now understood that the police no longer represent the interests of the many, especially when they speak of how their numbers have been so badly reduced and yet you can have a very fine turnout when the masses have something to say, peacefully.
