Charles is determined to stop the gas companies even if it means blowing up their wells and blocking their access to agricultural properties.But big gas is powerful and backed by rapacious governments who wont hesitate to use their police and army to smash through blockades.Can a small group of farmers, greens and conservatives stand against the might of big-gas and the governments complicit in helping it?
