Sipson Says Thankyou to Climate Camp

As the camp for climate action was winding down and packing up several groups of local residents were going around thanking people for all of their efforts over the last week and a half.

I'm sure the camp people are saying the same things - thanks Sipson (and others), for all the help and support during the camp. It's not over by a long shot.

One of the most inspiring things at the camp was all the positive comments and encouragement from the locals. One of the cops i had a chat with had the opinion that most of the people in Sipson were motivated by selfish reasons. I think this is untrue and all the people who came to visit the camp appeared to see the bigger picture and the importance of solidarity across civil society if we are to make the positive changes for the future.
I hope the people of Sipson had a eye opener to radical politics and alternative ways of living. This is what a good society could look like and i hope this knowledge gives them strength in the fight to save their community from the greed of corporations and government. Good luck!

to everyone from the local area who came down to the camp. I was working in the Welcome tent and was so happy and inspired to meet dozens of local people every day and hear about their campaigns. I live far away up north but will do everything I can to help stop the third runway. And thank you so much to everyone who brought food, bedding and other stuff down to the camp. You're all great!

Yeah, the locals were amazing. A very warm welcome and great conversations with them all - especially in the pub!
