Fossil Fool's Day 2008

ImageImageApril 1st saw CCC campaigners at a demonstration against Kingsnorth and a new wave of coal-fired power stations (see more here) in Parliament Square before moving on to conduct a demonstration outside the London offices of Argent Group PLC who are behind the UK's biggest opencast coal mine at Merthyr Tydfil in South Wales - see more here.

Campaign against Climate Change joined 'People and Planet' (the student environmentalists' organisation) in exposing the foolery of building a new coal-fired power plant at Kingsnoth and reverting to dinosaur coal technology just when we urgently need to reduce emissions.

Some familiar CCC faces (and a familiar CCC T-shirt) at the demo, with a message for the people across the road. (And those fossil fools again!)
