Climate Camp reveals Swoop positions for Wednesday!

The swoop starting positions for the 2009 Camp for Climate Action have been revealed.

Over a thousand people are expected to converge in central London outside multiple locations, before taking part in a ‘mass swoop’ sometime after 12 noon on Wednesday to begin the week-long Camp for Climate Action.

The locations that have been announced are: the headquarters of oil majors Shell and BP; the Bank of England, where Ian Tomlinson was killed by police during April’s G20 protests; global mining giant Rio Tinto; the site of the 2012 Olympics; and the tube station where Jean Charles de Menezes was shot dead by police in 2005.

At 12 noon on Wednesday, hundreds of activists are expected to gather at the starting positions for the swoop, where they will await text messages revealing the secret location of the Camp for Climate Action. They will then converge to build the site and take part in a week of workshops, direct action and sustainable living.
