Climate Campers 1, Police Nil.
It is a source of ongoing frustration to me that events have conspired to keep me from attending the Camp for Climate Action this week. This feeling only intensified after watching the following youtube clip.
In an incident not widely reported(again!) by the mainstream media, Police who had tried to force their way on to the campsite were prevented from doing so by the determined non-violent resistance of the campers. Check out the video, the peaceful and determined solidarity displayed by the Climate Camp activists is a thing of beauty, and a real joy to behold. How I wish I was there. Good luck to all the campers!
