Arrests in power station protest
Via the BBC, 17 October 2009
At least 80 people have been arrested and police and campaigners injured during protests at a Nottinghamshire power station.
A police officer and another man were taken to hospital after clashes at Ratcliffe-on-Soar. The officer, who had head injuries, was later released.
Protesters had pledged to break through the fence and halt power production.
About 1,000 protesters have been at the site and have threatened to continue their action over the weekend.
Ten people were arrested early on Saturday on suspicion of conspiracy to commit aggravated trespass.

A policeman was injured in this protest, how long before someone gets killed at these sorts of protests?
Also, I wonder if Dr James Hansen will make a carbon emitting trip to the UK to defend these vandals?
