I don't see much evidence of them being banked rolled, they were crowd funding for a vapour monitor, shirt of money for phone credit. No money for screws and nails. Had to get money from another protest group to hire a lorry to deliver 3-400 pallets , and even were going to accept rucksacks for the homeless to keep warm. They also begged a new kettle after the handle burnt off.
Leith hill action group have raised and spent £120k on the legal fight. Two very different campaigns!
Tony, these are murky waters. A lot of these itinerant protestors earn a living by protesting against anything oil and gas related. I understand that a well known 'green' nationwide retailer is bankrolling a number of these protest camps. What better way is there of promoting your green credentials, therefore selling more of your 'green' stuff to the easily led. Money money money. The irony is that they say it is all about money for the O&G companies. Very clever.
I looked into one of the ladies who is feeding the protestors with thier vegan slop. She has photos of her very sunny beach holiday, loads of photos of horses at competitions, and the horses and hounds at the hunt!
So she flies all over the world to hot countries, drives her pets round in a heavy diesel lorry and hunts with hounds, then drives up the hill to protest about oil and feed vegans sleeping on a cold hill, who object to oil use, and blood sports and meat eating... Folk are strange
