As a show of solidarity with the environmental activists protesting at Balcombe who also appear on the Consulting Association blacklist - the BSG will join the protest from 12 noon and speak via loud halers through the Heras fencing to the Cuadrilla workforce on site, not to barrack them, but to bring fact, humour and music. Come along waering Blacklisted T-shirts and hard hats for best visual impact
6. We have had considerable intersts from journalists and documentary film makers interested not just in blacklisting but the camapign - any blacklisted workers willing to participate with the press, give us a buzz.
