Friday was the first full day of workshops at the camp [pics] after two days of set up - concentrating on it's main purpose, direct action training, education around climate change, and skillshare. Around 35 sessions ran throughout the day on a wide variety of topics including the first of five daily mass direct action trainings [Pics 1|2|3].

In the afternoon a group of over 150 people left the camp to protest outside Barclays Bank in Canary Wharf, before marching through the streets, with banners reading "Climate Killer Coal" and "More Future Less Capitalism" all without interruption by police [photo report|2|3|4|5] [press release] [cc website pics] [twitpic 1|2] [video 1|2|3]
