London Climate Camp: Responses

Tents_ClimateCamp27Aug09.jpg Climate Camp's on Blackheath, blood isn't running down the grass, everyone's happy, right? Sort of. Lewisham Mayor Steve Bullock is attracting a lot of flak for his idiotic comparison of eco protesters to football hooligans: see the Blackheath Bugle's response. A Brockley resident did what Mayor Steve evidently hasn't, and went down to talk with the campers, leaving a comment on Brockley Central about their plans to clean up after themselves. Not even all the protesters are happy; the Whitechapel Anarchists Group seem quite gleeful about their severe barracking of chief superintendent Julia Pendry, which isn't going to help relations now, is it? In terms of activism, there's been a casino at Bishopsgate, and it seems the camp itself is happily going about its workshops. (Image / peterhayward28)
