Anti-fracking campaigners held a protest outside the AGM of UK Oil and Gas, a penny-share company who are undertaking exploratory drilling in the south of England. The company has tried to pre-empt all campaigning with a draconian injunction against persons unknown. 

Six local people have been forced to name themselves as defendants in order to challenge the injunction in the High Court and assert the right to protest which is protected by and bound by UK law. They don’t believe that companies should have the right to buy extra protection than that already afforded by statute, and to criminalise peaceful protest with serious imprisonable consequences.
