The knack How to be an eco-warrior
Saturday 05 September 1998
If conventional means aren't enough, take non-violent direct action, such as placing yourself in a tree to prevent it from being destroyed. Secure the site at risk by defining the area you wish to take, by tape or rope, and also on an ordnance survey map. Take a copy of this to the nearest police station and also pin a copy onto the rope along with copies of Section 6 and 12 of the Land and Countryside Act, which offers protection for buildings and land. Use the media to get your point across. Keep your spokespersons as locally led as possible and remember that in an average TV or radio interview you'll only have one to two minutes, so learn your soundbites in advance." Interview by Fiona McClymont
