With this year's Camp for Climate Action in London less than four weeks away we thought we'd revisit our report on last year's camp outside Kingsnorth coal-fired power station in Kent. It provides a window on the gaping gulf between mainstream reporting on the event and the reality of the Camp itself and includes interviews with some of the activists involved. We'll follow this up later in August with some interviews with participants from this year's upcoming camp. So cast your mind back, as we rewind the clock twelve months to August 2008.
