If Ayrshire Power and Peel get their way, soon a new coal-fired power station at Hunterston will be fed on this coal too. Making the links between communities affected by coal in Scotland and Colombia, these two events will feature a speaker involved in solidarity work with communities in Colombia driven off their land to make way for the mines.

Reclaim The Streets -- Making Election Day Worth Getting Outdoors

10-04-2010 12:33

It may be the most important election in our lifetimes; it certainly looks to be the closest.
