Climate Swoop vs Coal Power in Nottinghamshire

fencing

More than 50 people have been arrested as security fences were breached by 1,000 climate activists who had converged on the coal power station in Ratcliffe-on-Soar. The action is just over and so this is just a preliminary news report. You can also follow @climatecamp and @actforclimate (also here on twitfeed on right) for news, images, videos.

Many activists were bitten by police dogs, in another show of heavy-handed repression of climate protest that is becoming recurrent. But the tide of the times is with climate justice activists. All to Copenhagen!
