Mass Trespass - Shipley Country Park - 26th May 2008


It's time to dig out your picnic hamper and make some cucumber sandwiches for a Mass Trespass at the site of planned open cast coal mine in Derbyshire. The new action group 'Leave it in the Ground' are inviting all comers to meet at Shipley Country Park, Slack Lane, Heanor, Derbyshire at midday on the 26th May to go for a stroll on the beautiful 122 hectare site where UK Coal are about to start removing topsoil to get their grubby mitts on a million tons of coal.

Campaigners are hoping the visit will showcase the wildlife rich area ans be an inspiration for actions against the destruction.

As the system has (finally) realised cheap oil is coming to an end, companies have been increasingly scraping around for remnants of coal. Other new open cast sites across the country have met with massive resistance (see SchNEWS 627).
