There were some nasty moments though when police baton charged the crowd and used pepper spray.
Throughout the time of the blockade more people have been streaming through the fields to join them, some groups being as large as 300. As we write this groups have been splitting off from the main group heading who knows where.
Other groups have been dragging fallen trees and logs across other access roads and playing cat and mouse with the police in the forests.
It has to be said these blockades have been inspirational...
