This video is from day 5 of the Abercain Occupation.  By now Rowan and James had been up the apple tree for 5 days.   The tree was left unprotected for a couple of hours in the middle of the night, during which time the contractors came in with bow saws and cut off several of the branches.  When Rowan returned he had a long struggle with two construction workers but managed to climb back into the tree despite their efforts to pull him down.  The protest is beginning to attract interest from the national media – today saw a visit from a Daily Mail reporter plus a regional BBC tv news crew.

      Hi! It looks, suspiciously like they’ve used a couple of the stills that I shot from my video of the arrests without my consent at the end of the report!
