Climate action

More climate-related activist news

  • On 11 July, charges were dropped against Jon and Val Mager, arrested while meditating at Rathlin Energy’s gas exploration site in East Yorkshire on 15 May. The pair had been dropping off ice cream for the anti-fracking camp at Crawberry Hill, near Walkington.
  • Four people, including three Christian ministers, were arrested on 3 July during a prayer-blockade against the development of a new open-cut coal mine in the Leard State Forest, in New South Wales, Australia. The ecumenical group prevented mining equipment from entering for five hours before the arrests were made. Local people regard the planned mine a ‘disrespect’ to the indigenous rights of the Gomeroi Traditional Custodians.
  • Four climate activists were arrested during a sit-in at Canadian industry minister James Moore’s constituency office on 19 June. They were protesting against the Enbridge northern gateway pipeline, which is scheduled to bring 520,000 barrels of diluted bitumen from Alberta’s oil sands to a terminal in Kitimat, British Colombia. 130 First Nations oppose the pipeline, while 26 are said to have signed on for equity if the pipeline is built.
  • On 26 June, Elisabeth Leja, 75, the first person to be arrested for direct action against the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, had charges dropped against her just days before trial.
