Up to 600 campaigners against climate change participated in the Reclaim Power mass action. Four main blocs gathered at the centre of the Climate Camp before splitting off into different groups, with some heading towards Drax across fields to avoid police road blocks [See Report | Photos 1 | 2 | 3 | Video] Meanwhile, other, smaller actions had already begun, just after 4.30am seven activists occupied a Drax lighting tower. Later nearby roads were blocked by different affinity groups and another Drax lighting tower was also occupied with a banner reading "No Future For You". More perimeter penetrations occured as more groups arrived at the fence to be met with police in riot gear, horses and dogs. Total arrests are currently unknown, but believed to be in the region of 35-45 people, some of whom were violently attacked by police.
