Mainshill anti-coal camp, fortification weekend, 23-26 Jan

Ever wanted to build yourself a treehouse? Dig yourself a tunnel? Make yourself a lock-on? Now is your chance!

Mainshill Solidarity Camp in south-west Scotland has been occupying woodland due to be obliterated for an open-cast coal mine. They are under imminent threat of eviction and so are hosting a gathering to intensify the building of defences from Saturday 23rd to Tuesday 26th January.

Anyone who wants to be a part of resisting the expansion of coal-burning, anyone who wants to fight corporate greed, corrupt government and the feudal land ownership, and anyone who wants to defend a community from the self-interest of the few, should come.

What to bring:

* Warm clothes and waterproofs
* sleeping bag

Tasty vegan food will be provided, but bring any supplies you can. Any building materials, tools, climbing equipment, bedding or anything on their wish list you can spare please bring it along.
