Forestry Commission workers this morning re-started clear-felling large areas of plantation in preparation for a new open cast coal mine. When the clear-felling started in June, Mainshill solidarity camp was set up to stop work on the site and occupy it, preventing any further felling and preventing any of the wood being removed from the site. Support is needed to prevent this destruction.
A source close to the protesters at the mainshill solidarity camp said the trees are under attack from unfriendly chainsaws. If anyone wishes to participate in any tree defense in the beautiful lanrrkshire countryside do pop down for a visit.
