Climate Camp Cymru to target open cast in South Wales
July 18, 2010

For a second year running, Climate Camp Cymru will target open cast coal mining in South Wales:

Open cast is trashing the south Wales landscape
It’s time to take action
Climate Camp Cymru
13 – 17 August

A momentum is building. Last year we camped next to Ffos y Fran – one of the largest opencast mines in Europe – for a week of workshops and sustainable living. This summer we’re going back to basics with a light action-based camp, targeting coal somewhere in south Wales.

Our current economic system is based on an addiction to fossil fuels and on maximising profit at the expense of people and the environment. Fossil fuel corporations cannot be allowed to progress unchecked. We need green jobs for Wales, not dirty destruction.

On the 13th we’ll meet in Cardiff and make our way from there to the site.

Things to bring:

  • Tent
  • Sleeping bag
  • Warm clothes and waterproofs
  • Plate, bowl, mug and cutlery
  • and a bike could be useful too

Burning coal is destroying our climate, while opencast mining damages the earth and the health of local people. We must leave it in the ground.

Join a growing number of ordinary people taking direct action, and exploring alternatives, to stop the madness that is destroying the earth.

This August 13th -17th come to Climate Camp Cymru.
