Were we guilty of "cyber-bullying" Aggregate Industries? #FreeSpeech

Straitgate Action Group's Twitter account has been suspended. 

In our view we have not breached any Twitter Rules. Has something more sinister taken place?

Listed below is the last batch of Tweets we made before Twitter suspended our account. Do they amount to cyber-bullying a Swiss multinational, or do they highlight legitimate concerns that people across the country have with quarrying and the minerals industry? Each Tweet is linked to its source. 
It is perhaps ironic that the very last tweet made - innocuous looking enough, but the one that appeared to trigger the suspension a minute or two after it was tweeted - contained both the phrase We want to protect locals and the name Aggregate Industries...

We have appealed against the suspension.
