14-08-2007 12:18After a press conference at 12.30, the climate camp was opened. There will be a daily press hour at the camp. Much national and regional media were present. Most questions focussed on an e-mail by 'camp organisers', which BAA had apparently distributed, asking people to bring smart suits and steward outfits. Campers said, people might be targeting some corporations, like the BAA, so they might need them to get in. However, they reassured the press that they would not target Heathrow airport itself. The situation at the camp is calm: It's damp and cold and not many people can be seen. There is still heavy police presence at the gate, filming everyone getting in and out. A very minor police presence is at the Hayes and Harlington station. A Welcome Meeting is being held between 2 and 4pm, then the first round of workshops takes place at 4:30. The Indymedia tent is up and laptops are connected.
