And of course, they’re right, but numbers matter too. Please come and join the camp for as long as you can – even if just for a day, it will be greatly appreciated. The vibe on the camp is good, with defence-building and barricading happening all over the place with plenty of opportunities for people to get involved and lend a hand. See here for details of how to get the the camp.
The hearing for the eviction order of the Black Wood Solidarity Camp will take place on Thursday 1st April at Dunfermline Sheriff Court at 14:00. Come down and show your support for the occupation if you can.
Finally, UK Coal have claimed that the occupiers of Black Wood have caused fire damage to the site, disrupted a Great Crested Newt habitat and closed access to a footpath. The Solidarity Camp finds it ironic that a company about to provide fuel to a coal-fired power station, fanning the flames of catastrophic climate change, causing the forced migration of a protected Newt species and trashing their habitat on site, and permanently removing a right of way for the duration of the mine should accuse the camp of these things. The camp suggests that hypocrisy and deceit will get UK Coal nowhere.
