In collaboration with local resistance groups, we’ll set up camp near Ffos-y-fran and the site of the proposed new mine from Saturday 30th April to Wednesday 4th May, over the May bank holiday weekend.

The camp will be an inclusive and empowering space, a base to host a programme of workshops and trainings, a launchpad for action and a chance to build the kind of  just, democratic and sustainable community we want to see.

Read all the important logistical information in the camp booklet!

Legal Advice

legalobserverIt’s hard to anticipate in advance what kind of interaction with police and the law we might experience on camp so its good to be prepared.

Green & Black Cross are providing legal support for the duration of the camp and action. There will be a legal support space to ask any questions and legal observer training on camp.

We recommend you check out the Green & Black Cross website for more information on interacting with the law during camp. This Netpol guide for anti-fracking protesters is also recommended reading.

Always remember Green & Black Cross’ basic rules for dealing with police:
