Crude Oil Awakening direct action
Climate activists from the Building Block, one of three grops of activists, are making their way across fields and passed police to join the ongoing blockade of Coryton oil refinery. The out numbered police manage to stop a few activists and confiscate some materials but fail to make any arrests. The activists are all peaceful and avoid arrest only by peaceful means, by out-running police and out number them...Crude Oil Awakening is a coalition of climate change activist groups. On Saturday Oct 16 they shut the only entrance to Coryton oil refinery in Essex, UK with the aim of highlighting the issues of climate change and the burning of fossil fuels. The blockade meant that a great number of trucks with oil were not able to leave the refinary during the day of action.
