The Camp for Climate Action is a grassroots movement taking direct action against the root causes of climate change. They’ve already had major successes with Heathrow’s third runway and E.ON’s plans for a new coal fired power station at Kingsnorth.
This year they are targeting the Royal Bank of Scotland, one of the world’s largest investor in oil, gas and coal.
Camp for Climate Action: “Last year RBS were bailed out with £50 billion of public money. From tar sands extraction in Canada to coal infrastructure here in the UK, we’re paying to trash our future. These projects are not just causing
catastrophic climate change, but destroying the lives and livelihoods of people across the globe. Meanwhile, we’re told there is no money left in the public pot and we should be braced for decades of public sectors cuts.”
Camp for Climate Action 2010 is in Edinburgh from 21st to 24th August.
