Machines sabotaged at Mainshill Open Cast Coal Site

from coalactionscotland

12/04/2010 An anonymous post on Indymedia claims that in the early hours this morning three machines were sabotaged to the extent that they would have been inoperable when work on the site continued today, at considerable cost to Scottish Coal.
Since the eviction of the Mainshill Solidarity Camp, Scottish Coal have worked at an alarming pace to turn the once thriving wood into an open cast coal mine, with heavy machinery, offices and access roads littering the site. Activists vowed that the eviction was merely the end of the beginning of the campaign against an open cast at Mainshill and Scottish Coal’s operations in the Douglas Valley.
The communique reads:
In the early hours of this morning machinery at Mainshill open cast site was sabotaged. Two Caterpillar D9T’s and a 170 tonne face scrapping earth mover, an O&K RH90, were targeted, both will be inoperable today, and will cost Scottish Coal greatly.
A sustained campaign of sabotage has been waged at Mainshill and it was vowed to continue even when work on the mine started. The only thing that has changed since the eviction of the Mainshill Solidarity Camp is that the machines on the site are bigger and more expensive. The machinery at the Mainshill site, and any other coal site in Scotland, are extremely vulnerable. Sabotage against the coal industry will continue until its expansion is halted.
This action was done by autonomous environmentalists in solidarity with the people of South Lanarkshire who are fighting to save their community and their health from the coal industry. This is also in solidarity with people around the world, including Columbia and India, who are fighting for their lives against the coal industry.
Mainshill vive – la lucha sigue!
