– By RC.
RC joined hundreds in protesting on No Dash For Gas’s day of action in Balcombe: a day of peaceful protest and civil disobedience which was met with unproportionate and indiscriminately heavy handed police tactics. After witnessing the violent arrest of her friend by an officer who’d removed his identification number, she was pulled from the crowd and arrested too. Balcombe’s battle saw 39 arrested just on this day, and over 100 arrested in total. Fortunately RC’s charges have since been dropped.
