Thread Name: Balcombe Protest Asking For Musicians
Subject: RE: Balcombe Protest Asking For Musicians
There has been much in our national press about "outsiders" coming in to protest in Balcombe. This is an issue for locals only, they argue, they are the ones who should be involved.

They are correct! Let's support these fine, honest, unbiased publications in their endeavours at removing incomers from all involvement in this issue. But, where to start? How about starting with the firm that are despoiling the Sussex environment and threatening the quality of our air and water?

Cuadrilla is a joint venture between private equity firm Riverstone and the Australian engineering group AJ Lucas. They each have 41% share, with management holding the balance. Riverstone is based in New York.

Not that many local connections then.
