I am beginning to warm to this climate camp thing - the Police should have adopted a low-key policing approach instead of coming across all heavy handed and ultraviolent. It serves their overtime cause no purpose whatsoever. They devote so many resources to setting up normal criminals so they can nick them (e.g. cars left unlocked with hidden cameras) why didn't they just wait until the activists did whatever they have planned then just nick each and every one of them, recommend the CPS send them down for years and set back the leadership of the cause for years? Whoever is in charge of the police clearly has not read 'The Art of War' in management training.
Good work climate campers! The efforts are paying off already!

If Police insist on unnecesary stop and searches to deter people from entering the camp
then i personally would put a pin cushion in my bag and make it a little less comfortable for them.

google and download FreeDownloadManager which will download most files into a downloads folder. Then download VLC media player which will play most media file types. It's worth also getting FLV flash video player for some flash video files.#

Hope this helps
