Direct Action Training Begins Under the Shadow of Drax

Under the shadow of the Drax coal-fired power station, activists at the Camp for Climate Action will begin civil disobedience training on Monday. This is part of preparations for Thursday's mass action which plans to shut down Drax. The training (and the camp itself) are open to the public, and people are urged to come down and participate.

"We are already feeling the destructive effects of a climate which is in crisis, and the time for action is now. I urge people to come to the camp, learn more about climate change and ways to live sustainably. And perhaps even to help shut down Drax!" added Emma Pegg, 29, who just arrived at the camp from Leeds.

Monday's training will focus on "tools and tactics for blockading", and groups will be meeting throughout the day to plan their contribution to the big day of mass action. Other workshops include "Climate science for kids", and "How to count and cut your carbon".

Meanwhile, some local residents claim that Drax has drastically lowered its visible chimney emissions, perhaps even cutting output during the Climate Camp.
