police endanger Iceland dam protestors


Police and security guards at the Karahnjukar Dam construction site in Iceland, last night ordered the bulldozers drivers to start their engines and move off, despite there being more than 25 people locked on to the underside of their vehicles.

First lock on in Icelandic history

Iceland Blockade 1

On Tuesday 19th July 2005.a group of approximately 20 of us hiked to the main junction approaching the site. Four of our group locked on to a pick up truck and a HUGE caterpillar construction vehicle. We managed to block 2 other access roads and hault work on the site for three hours. This was a first in Icelandic history:the police had to make up a word for “lock-on�. Thirteen of us were “detained�, apparently “arrested�, and later released without charge....with the warning that Impregilo were “looking at this incident with grave eyes� and were likely to make a civil case. Impregilo have since changed their mind. For a change, the media did report that the protesters were “friendly�!

Plymouth farmers & shoppers demo at Sainsburys

Sainsburys plymouth demo

As militant cows, we would like to thank the 15 shoppers and farmers who demonstrated in the pouring outside Sainsbury's Marsh Mills store in Plymouth this Saturday. We cows get stuffed with untested GM bullshit yet recieve a pittance from the supermarkets in exchange. We say "cows unite – storm the aisles" – which is exactly what a fellow herd of cows did on the same day at Sainsbury's in Sherborne, Dorset (but we'll let them tell you about it themselves).
