Legal Challenge

Crowdfunder launched for legal challenge against UK Oil and Gas Injunction

Weald Action Group, and six campaigners in Surrey and Sussex who are challenging the UK Oil and Gas (UKOG) injunction have launched their crowdfunder to pay for their legal costs.

Ann, Sue, Natasha, Constance, Vicki and Jacqui have courageously stepped forward to fight this High Court injunction.  This injunction could stop the right to peaceful protest and prevent us from raising awareness of the new risky methods of unconventional oil and gas drilling and the industrialisation of our beautiful countryside in the South East.

Can you please pledge to support them? It doesn’t matter as to the amount. EVERY BIT HELPS.

These type of injunctions are draconian in its chilling effect, and counter to the right to assembly and the right to freedom of expression.  There is already criminal law to deal with any unlawful activities, and this injunction should have no part in defining what is legal and what is not. It is a blatant attack on our human rights.

If this injunction is granted it could also serve as a precedent for other oil and companies here in the south-east and around the country. It should be fiercely resisted and we need to raise funds for our legal costs to fight this.
