New anti-Open cast site occupied in South Lanarkshire
September 16, 2010

On Sunday afternoon a beautiful corner of Happendon Wood in the Douglas Valley, South Lanarkshire, was occupied to prevent its open casting and subsequent retail/industrial development. The camp will also serve as a base to organise within surrounding communities and to take action against coal infrastructure in Scottish Coal’s heartland.
