Did you see the news?
I know its unusual for me to post on Saturdays but I just wanted to check that everyone saw what happened to a coal train just 20 miles south of where I’m sat right now. A group of activists brought the 2000 ton train to a stand still and then started emptying it onto the tracks, setting up home for the night inside the train and generally making sure that the train is going nowhere. I’d been getting really demotivated lately, but this has just shattered the state of jadedness I’ve been in for several days. Go read all about it: BBC News, Indymedia, Pictures on Indymedia, TheCoalHole.org
Its amazing how a small group of people can go do something hugely audacious, and how it can really inspire people to get moving and take action. We don’t all have to do things that are as spectacular as this, but if just 10,000 people took action, we could actually stop a whole new power station from being built. Next stop: Climate Camp, Kingsnorth Powerstation, Kent, 3rd to 11th August. See you there… (and if you’re a Christian, bring lots of mugs!)
