Off With Their Heads!
Holding the politicians behind Mainshill Open Cast Coal Mine to account
Featuring: Jim Hood MP, Karen Gillon MSP, Councillor Danny Meikle and Lord Home
This short film documents the corruption, conflict of interest and hypocrisy dominating the politics of South Lanarkshire, that result in Scottish Coal receiving approval for coal mine after coal mine in the Douglas Valley. With no regard for community health, local democracy, the environment or climate change, Scottish Coal are allowed to run roughshod over the people of the Douglas Valley. The Mainshill Solidarity Camp occupied the site of Mainshill Wood over six months ago to help local communities fight off Scottish Coal and the landowner Lord Home.
The struggle continues!
Don’t Let The Buggers Get You Down
is a short film made by Daniel Epstein who visited the Mainshill Solidarity Camp in July.
“In South Lanarkshire, Scotland, a group of protestors are opposing the establishment of a new mine. They’ve set up camp on the proposed site, determined to keep contractors at bay. They’re the Mainshill Solidarity Camp. Driven by green-politics, and a strong dislike for corporate governance, the campers are more than willing to “break the law to do what they feel is right”.”
