Protect Pont Valley
Pont Valley's legal battle for nature, climate & community - By Campaign to Protect Pont Valley
300 metres from my house, the habitats of protected species are being destroyed to extract coal; fuelling climate change and lining the pockets of the mining company, Banks Group. We believe we can prove that Banks Group has committed crimes against wildlife, and the government let them continue their destructive project, despite claiming to be 'powering past coal'. So far we've won public enquiries, camped in the snow, documented protected species on the site and more. We will use all tools available to us to stop the opencast and challenge the power of fossil fuel companies.
