Brecon The Law

sabotage at Brecon Beacons gas pipeline works (Wales)

The Brecon Beacons gas pipeline works were sabotaged during a night of covert action this week. It's the latest effort in the campaign to fight the building of a high pressure gas pipeline across southern Wales (see SchNEWS 593 and 576). A small crew managed to bypass security and equipped with just a wrecking bar were able to immobilise eleven earth working machines including tippers and excavators, and hole the pipeline itself in several places. Protesters badly damaged engines and hydraulics on the machines.
