Mainshill Solidarity Camp

Work has started at Mainshill, where Scottish Coal want a new coal mine but the community does not. Huge areas of plantation are being felled and JCBs have moved in. The Solidarity Camp has been doing its best to stop work on the site (video), but now we need your support and solidarity to win this fight against Scottish Coal, Lord Home and South Lanarkshire Council!
Building – Workshops – Action
Saturday 13st October, 1pm: A walk of the area with people from surrounding and affected communities, visiting areas that have been destroyed by Scottish Coal and areas that we can still save. A discussion on the campaign so far and where we can take it will follow.
Climbing, treehouse building and tunneling workshops
A “work day” to build the Solidarity Camp some new defences
Evening camp-fire entertainmentPlenty of chances to stop a beautiful area of Scotland’s countryside from being turned into an opencast coal mine
What to bring:
Warm clothes and water-proofs, a tent, sleeping bag and matAny food, building materials and tools you canMost importantly, bring yourself and your friends
