The injunction was granted on Friday on a temporary basis amid growing criticism of the corporate use of injunctions to counter protests. At least five companies have chosen to use them as legal weapons in this way.

Campaigners have condemned the legal orders as chillingly anti-democratic and draconian, and protesters have raised at least £40,000 from public donations to oppose them at legal hearings. Those who break the injunctions face being jailed, being fined or having their assets seized.

Artcle continues on site.

A thousand poxes on Cuadrilla! May the fleas of ten thousand alley cats invade the crotch of its CEO - the day after he breaks both arms.

So damn undemocratic!!!!

Article 11:
Your right to freedom of assembly and association

Everyone has the right to associate with others and gather together for a common purpose.
Article 11 is fundamental to keeping us free. It lets us protest peacefully, join trade unions and hold the powerful to account.

It’s not necessarily a breach of protest rights if authorities require you to give notice of plans to stage in advance, as long as notification doesn’t become an obstacle to free assembly.
Lawful restrictions can be placed on Article 11 rights by members of the Armed Forces, police and others – but those restrictions must be backed up by convincing and compelling reasoning.

TY Fiona
