Stopping Work at Mainshill
documents the destruction caused by the ongoing work to turn Mainshill Wood into an open cast coal mine, up until October 2009, and the many actions that had taken place to stop and slow it. This video was in preparation for a gathering at the Mainshill Solidarity Camp that saw over 70 people come to the camp for the weekend and take action against the treefelling and drillling.
The eviction of the camp finally begun on Monday 25th January. It lasted 5 days, 45 people were arrested in the process and over 70 people took part in the eviction. The campaign, however, is still going strong and actions continue!
