Hi everyone, there is a public action against new open cast coal mining
coming up. The people organising it are a new group and a hoping for lots of
people to come, to start building a strong resistance against the massive
new coal mining plans in the UK and elsewhere. It'll be a fun day and a
great start to the campaign.

Leave it in the Ground!
open-cast coal mass trespass and picnic
Meet noon, 26th May, Derbyshire

A new open-cast coal mine site is about to get underway in beautiful
Derbyshire, unless we stop it now. Lodge House site is one of seven that
UK Coal is to open-cast. The 122 hectare site will have one million tonnes
of coal ripped out over five years by UK Coal.
This is madness in the face of climate change and it is also criminal
vandalism of nature. So lets stop it!

To combat open-cast coal mining at this and other new mines, a new action
group 'Leave it in the Ground'; has formed, supported by Earth First! with
an invite to a Picnic in the Park on 26th May for a mass trespass to see it
before the destruction starts, meet the locals and have fun. So come and
Discover Derbyshire!
Meet at the Visitors Centre, Shipley Country Park, Slack Lane, Heanor DE75
7GX at 12 noon on the 26th May.

Bring banners, music, food and sturdy footwear.
