CLIMATE CAMP - happy days are here again!

Putting the wind up a clown!
To read the news coming out of Climate Camp you'd think it was all doom and gloom. Police blockade roads, supplies have to be carried along the lane, police invade the site, police set up traps and police lead campers into the injunction zone.

There's a thread running here of course, and it's that the cops and their bosses are doing their very best to intimidate the camp and depress the mood.

Well I'm delighted to report they're failing miserably. Everything they throw at us brings us closer together.

Police force climate camp march to Heathrow airport and block A4...

Just a quick report to say that today a small march of around 80 people left from the climate camp to support a local demonstration against heathrow expansion. They were very quickly surrounded by over one hundred police - having just left the camp this happened in what could be called a side street - then quite inexplicably the police forced the group down several streets towards the airport. Still penned in on all side by police, they were then forced across the main A4 road (which police closed for some time before forcing the people across it) and then right up to the security fence of Heathrow where they were held for over one hour.

Climate Camp - indymedia seems quiet today...?

Linda McCutcheon pleads with police
An event as big as Climate Camp - you'd expect to see a bit more coverage on indymedia - no?

Sadly indymedia was a casualty of the heavy, illogical and indiscriminate policing operation surrounding Climate Camp, and Sipson village in particular. The satellite truck and its power supply were caught up in a massive and pointless traffic jam. Read more >>
