There'll be a celebration, so aim to stick around for Monday if you can.

Under the shadow of Drax power station, the Camp for Climate Action burst into life. Running from August 26 to September 4, 2006, this totally unprecedented project involved hundreds of people from across the UK coming together. The camp was a great success, with a packed programme of workshops, and the camp itself was organised in an environmentally-friendly way, and powered by sustainable energy sources - wind turbines, solar panels, and small-scale biodiesel. Participants used as little power as possible, and produced as little landfill waste as possible, as the majority of waste was either composted or recycled. Direct actions included a ten hour blockade of Hartlepool nuclear power station, and a mass convergence on Drax coal-fired power station.

The Camp for Climate Action has been an amazing success but is now £4000 in debt, please donate if you can.
