It's magic! Food gets into Vestas occupation

by Tom Walker
Issue No. 2162

At 2pm today activists got more food into the Vestas occupation in the Isle of Wight. The workers have been going hungry as management are not supplying enough food.

Climate camp activists dressed as wizards got past the management's new fence and the police blockade of the plant. While the guards were distracted other supporters managed to throw a bag full of food and a kettle up to the occupiers on a balcony above.

This is the first food the occupiers have got from anyone other than the management since Wednesday of last week.
