On Wednesday 16th, contractors parked in front of Mainshill Solidarity Camp returned to find their van sabotaged.

The Raeburn workers turned up at 2.30 with the estate manager and left their vehicles unattended while they took soil samples within the camp. In less than ten minutes, though the work van windows were smashed and ‘out of mainshill’ and ‘no more coal’ sprayed on the sides. A bucket of compost was tipped over the bonnet. Unfortunately, the estate manager’s 4×4 only got a small scratch.
The occupation of Mainshill continues, and we welcome others who wish to join us in resisting open cast coal mining and the environmental toxification it causes.
