The Weekly Round-up: Tuesday 3rd August
Crikey, time for a round-up. A bit late, but then again, so much has been happening! Not only is there the Edinburgh Climate Camp in a fortnight (that’s right, folks, it’s that close), but everyone’s getting stuck in to some serious climate action.
Down in London, Greenpeace hit the news by shutting down 43 BP petrol stations in one morning, spreading the Party at the Pumps vibe across the capital. Nice one Greenpeace (though not so sure about the ‘EU legislation now’ button on the website).
Over in Belgium, they’re getting stuck into the KlimaatActieKamp, where they did a great action against Liege airport on Monday, bringing in a protest against the securitization of the area, which they’re dubbing ‘Prison Beach.’
Climate change, No; Political change, Yes!
The French Climate Camp has also been happening! After setting up base camp in Le Havre, next to an almighty mammoth area of industrial wasteland, the French campers took their message to the streets with a ‘Velorution’ (velo meaning bicycle), for climate action and against Total.
As the Rossport activists build up to their wave of civil disobediance against the Bore Holes, news also comes that Niall has now been over 100 days in prison for an alleged assault, despite the fact that video evidence was refused in court, which shows the real story.
Finally, MULE magazine in Manchester have put ut a call for some support. They’ve got a great blog, which you can check out here.
