South West England
between thursday 19th and sunday 22nd of April there will be a Climate Camp in Bath.
The camp will be a self managed space with workshops, actions, party and protest. Most of the action/protest will be focused around the head offices of Land and Marine who are building a contraverisial gas pipeline through wales. The pipeline has been the scene of numerous demos and actions, delaying progress on almost a daily basis. Its time to take the battle to Land and Marines doorstep!

In the summer of 2006, 600 people convinced that there is no time to waste set up a Camp for Climate Action in the shadow of one of the biggest C02 emitters in Europe: Drax coal-fired power station in Yorkshire / UK. Cine Rebelde produced a documentary film about the camp.

The Campaign Against Prison Slavery is a group set up to try to expose the reality of prison labour, how little of it teaches skills that can be used after release and which could help reduce the chances of re-offending.

Campaigners gathered on College Green, after spending the morning issuing over 1,000 mock parking tickets to 4x4s in areas of central Bristol including Redland, Clifton and Broadmead. The paper tickets, which are placed harmlessly under the windscreen wipers of parked vehicles, are titled ‘Poor Vehicle Choice’ and challenge the need to own and drive a 4x4 vehicle in town.
