Edinburgh Gathering write-up
We had a wicked gathering in Edinburgh last weekend and are now all busy getting the camp together. We talked about how the camp can support existing struggles in Scotland such as action against open-cast. Many people signed letters to submit to the Hunterston coal power station consultation process. Links were made about how to build solidarity with workers in polluting industries. There was also a discussion about fuel poverty and how this relates to climate justice.
While there wasn’t exactly a decision about a mass action there was certainly loads of ideas floating around for actions and how to organise these. We also talked a fair bit about the reasons behind coming up to a camp at Edinburgh to target RBS and also how this links to other aspects of climate justice. This is a really exciting phase in the climate camp journey so please come up to the next gathering in Glasgow on the 31st of July and 1st of August.
