The Climate Action Camp is over... And it was great.

More than 400 people participated in (at least a part of) the camp, the atmosphere was great, and the actions were all very successful. There were actions against the nuclear central in Doel, against the meat industry, against the Lange Wapper bridge in Antwerp etcetera. During the day of mass action against coal, between 150 and 200 people succeeded in entering the terrain of ABT, a huge coal terminal, and blocked its activities for one day. The basis is laid for a strong mobilization towards Copenhagen, where we plan massive actions to stop the ineffective and procapitalist solutions to the climate crisis governments and corporations advocate.
Here you find a couple of videos about some of the actions:
