Late one night in early January Pineal open cast coal mine was visited by a number of people who sabotaged machines. A total of 13 pieces of machinery were damaged, including one giant earth mover, six giant dumper trucks, four standard sized earth movers and two flood light generators.
Recently Pineal open cast finished mining, but the machines Scottish Coal had working there were supposed to be moving to Mainshill Wood. However as we all know Scottish Coal's plans have been substantially disrupted by the occupation of the wood by the Mainshill Solidarity Camp.
This action was taken by autonomous people in solidarity with everyone who opposes the destruction of Mainshill Wood and it's development into another coal mine.
