Activists to tackle Open cast mine in South Wales

Climate Camp Cymru
13 – 17 August 2010
A momentum is building. Last year we camped next to Ffos y Fran - one of the
largest opencast mines in Europe - for a week of workshops and sustainable
living. This summer we’re going back to basics with a light action-based
camp, targeting coal somewhere in south Wales.

Our current economic system is based on an addiction to fossil fuels and on
maximising profit at the expense of people and the environment. Fossil fuel
corporations cannot be allowed to progress unchecked. We need green jobs for
Wales, not dirty destruction.

On the 13th we’ll meet in Cardiff and make our way from there to the site.
Things to bring:
> Tent
> Sleeping bag
> Warm clothes and waterproofs
> Plate, bowl, mug and cutlery
> and a bike could be useful too

Burning coal is destroying our climate, while opencast mining damages the earth
and the health of local people. We must leave it in the ground.
Join a growing number of ordinary people taking direct action, and exploring
alternatives, to stop the madness that is destroying the earth. This August
13th -17th come to Climate Camp Cymru.
