Reclaim the Power

In late April early May 2016 I took part in Reclaim the Power’s occupation of Ffos Y Fran, the UKs largest open cast coal mine and the supplier of cheap dirty fossil fuels to Aberthaw, the UK’s dirtiest power station.

The action was planned in collaboration with “The United Valleys Action Group”, democratic representatives of a community that see no future for themselves and their families in the continuing acceptance of environmental degradation and high levels of air pollution, in return for a handful of local jobs and minimal local investment.

The continuing extraction and use of fossil fuels is a crime against the planet and its people, including future generations, we need to switch urgently to renewable clean energy sources that have minimal impact upon the planet, its eco systems and its peoples.
