Green Party responds to arrest of life-member and activist Tina Rothery

2 September 2017

Responding to the news that Green Party life-member and activist Tina Rothery was arrested for protesting at the fracking site at Preston New Road today, Amelia Womack, Green Party deputy leader, said:

"I offer my full support and total admiration to Tina. She is an inspiration and has proved time and again that to live in a free society we must be constantly challenging the decisions of those in power. She has put herself on the line to stop dirty and destructive fracking and with supporters and her political party behind her that effort will not be in vain."

Tina is, of course, a leading light of both the anti-fracking movement and a member of Blackpool and Fylde Green Party.

She is scheduled to appear in court on 10th October.
