Activist Protectors have established a camp in an occupied field near to Kirby Misperton, North Yorkshire, an area scheduled to be fracked by the drilling company Third Energy. The camp, which now has a fully functioning community kitchen, has attracted anti-fracking visitors, supporters and donations of food and supplies from all around the country (including Halsall). The aim of the Protection Camp is to establish and maintain a strong presence in the area and to work with the local Community in their quest to protect North Yorkshire from Unconventional Gas exploitation. North Yorkshire Police, Ryedale District Council and North Yorkshire County Council have all agreed to facilitate peaceful protest by those involved in the Protection Camp.
