Semi naked Anti Biomess protesters Occupy Avonmouth Port site

Eleven activists from Bristol Rising Tide breached Port security at 9.50am on May 20th to stage a protest photo on the proposed Helius biomass site.

The group, who were sporting biohazard suits, dust masks and body paint scaled the nine foot fence next to the train station with ladders, and after spelling out No Biomess with their torsos were met by a number of port authority police who escorted them out under threat of arrest for breach of by-laws.

A press release has been sent out explaining that this is “a friendly shot across the bows to warn investors and the Port Authority that they should expect expensive and embarrassing resistance if they press ahead with plans for Industrial scale Biomass power stations in the area.”
