COAL CARAVAN - route & dates update

The fabulous climate caravan lives on.

This time we will be the COAL CARAVAN, walking and cycling between the sites for proposed open cast mines and new power stations in the Midlands, Yorkshire and North East.

Stop the new Leeds Opencast

Join us on Saturday 10th January 2009 to march around the proposed open cast coal mine site at Newton Lane, near Fairburn Ings nature reserve and Castleford.

YANC SAYS:

NO CO2AL HOLE

It’s time to say NO!

We don’t want a dirty opencast coal site adding to climate change
