Organised by the Coal Action Network:

Thought that the battle against coal had been won? Think again! Open cast coal mining is alive and well!

UK Coal have been trying to bring this extreme energy to Bradley in county Durham. First their planning application was unanimously rejected by the local council. Then they lost on appeal and now they're seeking a judicial review.

Please join The Coal Action Network at 9am on 5 June at the Royal Courts of Justice and let UK Coal know that no community consent means no open cast mining! Bring lots of banners and be prepared to make some noise!
