Climate Camp at 1.30pm

Phone report from the climate camp site at 1.30pm:

There are now about 300 people on site. The atmosphere seems to be relaxed, although vehicles are still not allowed in, and people are only allowed to enter the site from the Sipson end. Police are strolling around the site accompanied by campers taking notes onf clipboards. People are being searched on both ends. Lots of media vans are parked near the main entrance, including many tv crews and three satellite vans. Generator x is stuck outside the camp.

The building of infrastructure has slowed down due to the police blockade. Wheelie bins are being used to bring stuff in, the media is very interested in that. People are laying a pipe for water but currently, they have to carry it in. However, without vehicles, it is impossible to get marquees onto the site, which are needed to hold workshops and meetings.

FIT Watch at Climate Camp

FIT Watch will have an active presence at Climate Camp from Tuesday morning both at Staines Station and the camp itself.

We are also hoping to form a rota of people to stand outside camp trying to prevent FIT from taking photos, and adding to our own database of police photos.

Please help us and get involved – let’s show we will not accept their repressive policing.

We will have a workshop on Tuesday at 4:30pm at the camp to set up a rota. This workshop will also deal with the legalities of dealing with FIT Teams and will discuss how we can resist them in the future.

BAA injunction judge is also a potential defendant

John Stewart and Leo Murray outside the High Court today

She declared her interest as part of the opening session.

All three organisations' members risk criminal prosecution if they breach terms of an injunction being sought by BAA in court today. Read more >>

Icelandic Media Lie that No SI Prisoner is Being Held!

Arrests at the Rio Tinto Alcan smelter in Iceland
Both National Broadcaster RUV and TV station Stod 2 claim that no SI
prisoner is being held. Both news departments quote the police as a
source for this.

This is typical of the kind of massaging of the truth that both the
Icelandic police and media are used to getting away with. Read more >>
