Peat works shut down for 3 days

8/01

An action was planned to coincide with the EF! Gathering at the start of August.
A group of about 30 people headed off to the peat works after another action against prison labour in solidarity with Mark Barnsley.

The action was announced in the morning meeting at the gathering, and when we arrived police (with horses) had occupied the works. Speaking to workers after the event we were told that the police had claimed that 100 violent anarchists had planned to come and destroy the works.

However this was our most successful action to date, because an advert on a board claiming we would be going back on Monday after the gathering caused the police to shut down the works for 3 days and leave 300 police there for the whole of that period.
