Saving Iceland at Climate Camp 2007

17 August 2007

The SI collective gave a presentation on Thursday 16th at the UK’s Camp for Climate Action. Over 30 people attended to hear about the heavy-industrial destruction of Iceland, Trinidad, South Africa, Brasil and India.

The Climate Camp is situated next to London’s Heathrow Airport and constitutes, “Eight days of low-impact living, debates, learning skills, and high-impact direct action tackling the root causes of climate change.” The central target for the camp is the airline industry, which is the fastest growing contributor towards climate change in the world. Mirroring the 2% to 3% rise in CO2 from the industry, Heathrow Airport is set for an expansion of two to three runways.

Indymedia journalists radio interviewed one SI activist and you can hear him here, he is the second person talking.

Thanks to everyone who came to the talk and from everyone around the world here at Saving Iceland, we wish you our full solidarity and strength in your actions against the aviation industry.

ps. a message to all the CC organisers: Now that we’ve got our own marquees in Iceland we’ve gotten over the fact that you jammily managed to bag all the UK’s good ones last year, leaving us crammed into a leaky and dark army tent in the middle of the extremities of the Icelandic highlands at our camp!!! ;-)

In love, strength and soap-less rage to all of you at Climate Camp,
Saving Iceland collective.
