Daily Video Reports From Camp For Climate Action

Video of Climate Camp 2008 at Kingsnorth
This is a series of daily video reports from the Climate Camp 2008 in Kingsnorth, Kent, UK
The Climate Camp 2008 at Kingsnorth has chosen that site, because there are plans to build a new coal powered generating station there and given that coal is a big emitter of CO-2 into the atmosphere, then this make sense to make it the focus of a climate action campagin.
Indeed, the level of the annual summer melt in the Arctic in 2007 was so great that projections for an (summer) ice free Arctic have been brought forward from around the year 2080 to anytime within the next few years. This should be an urgent wake up call to everyone.
Violence from the police has been reported. Dunk, an Indymedia.ie contributor, says: "police handling was very over the top: witnessed headbutts from cops, shields and batons to heads and one poor bloke getting full side baton blow to knee, didn't see him after, rumours were that his knee cap had been seriously injured".
Despite this, spirits and morale at the camp are high. Dunk added the following: "The camp is rocking, bigger and bolder than last year, I was there till Thursday lunchtime ... The level of spirit and community at the camp was incredible, last year George Monbiot felt how this is definitely the birth of a movement, or a new type of movement. It is that, but so much more...it's getting bigger, it has to, how the world works must radically change or else its good night human species."
Dunk continued by calling on Ireland to also set up a Climate Camp, saying: "Last year was climate camp UK number 2. This year there are climate camps in Australia, New Zealand, Germany, US, Sweden, Canada. Next year more climate camps are planned globally, including Copenhagen, in lead up to COP09, the UN post Kyoto gathering. This weekend is the 2nd Irish Green Gathering, so things green are growing in Ireland, but can they, or should they, become more confrontational. Perhaps Ireland might create its own climate camp - a week of critical talks, the creation of a meeting place to develop further the Irish eco community, finishing in a day of direct action - perhaps Rossport?""
