Various blogs and alternative media outlets like PR Week today are reporting on the disbanning of the anti-capitalist, anti-carbon radical environmental cult campaign known as the Camp for Climate Action.
This is the crazed campaign that attempted to storm the Drax coal-fired power plant and blockaded the British Airports Authority. According to Wikipedia the campaign’s overall puprose was to…
…act as a base for direct action against, major carbon emitters, as well as to develop ways to create a zero-carbon society. Camps are run on broadly anarchist principles…”
In a statement appearing at its website, the Climate camp is calling the step a “metamorphosis”.
The reason for the metamorphosis is:
The near-collapse of the financial system; droughts in the Amazon, floods in Pakistan; a new government in the UK; a violent programme of unprecedented cuts; food prices rising and real incomes eroding; revolutions across the Middle East… This is all very different from 2005 when the Camp for Climate Action first met to spark radical action on the greatest threat to humanity, climate change.”
The Camp for Climate has apparently grown tired of its civil disobedience and squatting out in nature. Their new mission:
…we will launch new radical experiments to tackle the intertwined ecological, social and economic crises we face.”
Wonderful. That’s exactly what the world needs right now: bored kook activists performing “radical experiments” on society for the pupose of avoiding imagined social and economic crises. Has the British healthcare system deteriorated to the point that it can no longer care for its mentally ill?
Obviously the movement has now been taken over by more refined, sophisticated lawyer-type activists, who see an opportunity to capitalise. Its leaders will probably get offices in London, Paris, Berlin, etc., a staff of legal advisors, and will criss-cross all over the world in jets to every type of UN-sponsored save-the-planet-conference with the rest of the environmental NGO leaders – all funded by the EU, UN and other special interests.
Expect it to bully corporations into making donations, and threaten to send out its thugs if they don’t. The Climate Campaign ends its statement with (emphasis added):
Now is a chance to team up with the anti-cuts and anti-austerity movements and play a crucial role in the revolutionary times ahead. Anything but co-ordinated action is doomed to fail.
See you on the streets.”
Lovers of democracy and freedom – beware!
