Climate Camp: Day of Mass Action


Saturday August 9 is the Climate Camp Day of Mass Action, when "the climate camp will go beyond talk and culminate in a spectacular mass action to shut down Kingsnorth. Permanently!"

Campaigners intended to try and shut down the power station by land sea and air, with four main colour-coded "blocks." The Blue Block (or Great Rebel Raft Regatta) intended to approach Kingsnorth power station by water along the River Medway. Not wanting to be outdone, the Silver Block intended to approach from above. The Green Block meanwhile focused on making its way through the undergrowth, with the Orange Block completing the set with a children-friendly march to the main gates.
