Green Party MP Caroline Lucas MP has been found not guilty at Brighton Magistrates' Court of obstructing a public highway and a public order offence during an anti-fracking protest at Balcombe, West Sussex.
Green MP Caroline Lucas told the court she felt it was important to protest about fracking to prevent the UK from being locked into using more fossil fuels.
Ms Lucas said: "I'm haunted by the idea that my children and my children's children will turn round to me and say, 'What did you do about this overwhelming threat?'"
Her co-defendants were also cleared of both charges against them. They were Josef Dobraszczyk, 22, from Bristol; Ruth Jarman, 50, from Hook, Hampshire; Sheila Menon, 42, from north east London; and Ruth Potts, 39, from Totnes, Devon.
Brighton Pavilion MP Caroline Lucas was arrested outside energy company Cuadrilla's exploratory oil drilling site in Balcombe, West Sussex, last August 19.
She was among a group of protesters who had linked arms outside the site, which had become a national focal point for anti-fracking protests.
During the trial at alongside four co-defendants, Lucas, 53, said she "wanted to express solidarity" by protesting peacefully. She was found not guilty of the two charges she faced - wilful obstruction of a public highway and breaching an order under Section 14 of the Public Order Act.

Over a third of people questioned as part of a Daybreak poll on lads' mags want to see magazines like Zoo and Nuts banned from stores.
Nearly a third of people thought lads mags were harmful to society and almost half, 45%, believed they fuelled sexism.
A staggering 77% of people questioned would not allow their child to buy one.
The results comes ahead of a parliamentary meeting lead by MP Caroline Lucas, along with women's rights groups UK Feminista and Object, and will strongly criticise Tesco, the UK's biggest retailer, for stocking lads' mags.
