"We're in a beautiful location here in Lewes, surrounded by woods and overlooking the oil-threatened South Downs. People should come down, have a cup of tea and check out what's going on for themselves."
The campers have named oil-drillling on the South Downs, an incinerater in Newhaven and a proposed biofuel power station in Shoreham as potential local targets during the week.
The 30th of May has been named as a day of mass action which for the first time with combine both cuts and climate grievences.
Jenny Walker, one of those who took part in the swoop said: "With these massive cuts to public services, governments are making ordinary people pay for a crisis caused by the banks. But it is these same banks, fixated by the idea of profit at anyone’s and anything’s expense, that continue to bankroll climate-wrecking projects the world over."
"We are now, effectively, paying for our own destruction, this camp is about making the intrinsic link between the economic system and the climate crisis"
