The three protesters had met each other for the first time at the Camp for Climate Action and with six others, made their way to Drax down the river from Selby in the early hours. They evaded police with dogs, secrity with dogs, helicopters etc and scalled three fences. They initially locked on to a lighting tower but after about an hour and a half they decided to find something more disruptive.
They found the slag processing plant and climbed to the top over a conveyor belt then locked on. The police shut the machine down and it remained inoperable for about three hours until the three protesters were finally taken away by police.
The three are now back at the camp after a 28 hour detention. Personal accounts to follow...
Indymedia video interview will the uploaded later.
