Sabotage at Mainshill
On the morning of the 22nd of November a drilling rig had it's electronics and hydraulics cut. The specialist drilling rig is owned by Apex Drilling Services. The machine damaged is one of two rigs that have been working to prepare the Mainshill Wood area for coal extraction.
This sabotage is one of many recent attacks against coal and coal mining, and it should be clear that these actions will continue regardless of the existence of Mainshill Solidarity Camp.
This action was taken by a group of autonomous people in solidarity with all those who oppose the development of Mainshill Wood into an open cast coal mine.
