Police bullying at Camp Kingsnorth

07-08-2008 22:06

I’ve just returned from a 2-3 day sojourn at the Climate Camp at Kingsnorth — site of a proposed new coal-fired power station – which is now gearing up towards its climax.

Food vans stopped a mile from Climate Camp by cops.

07-08-2008 21:30

Those ever helpful cops...
Vans delivering food are being stopped by the Police and forced to unload a mile from the site.

The cops are constantly saying the words "health and Safety" to justify every bit of harrassment they dish out. Yet here they are forcing dozens of people to cross a fast and busy main road carrying heavy boxes??!
