Climate Victory

The climate protesters have, IMHO, achieved a huge victory already. Even before any protest started, BAA's attempt to stifle democratic protest with the injunction was a major PR blunder. I saw the boss of Heathrow look like a petulant child on the news for refusing the debate with a representative from climate camp. Then the climate camp got the jump on the cops setting up in a field they did not have permission for two days before planned - by the time the cops arrived it was too late. Then the spate of direct action and protests which has seen Heathrow, Department For Transport, XL Airways, Biggin Hill and Farnborough Airport and Bristol Airport all targeted.

Hat's off to 'em all – the protesters have done a fantastic job in the face of massive police, state and corporate repression.
