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 seven months ago to help local communities fight off Scottish Coal and the landowner Lord Home.
The camp has now been evicted, but the struggle continues!
