Last weekend relief and development agency Christian Aid carried out a ‘mass virtual trespass’ at a Shropshire power plant. The event, staged to coincide with 100 days until the UN climate change summit in December, involved shining photos of supporters’ messages onto an E.ON cooling tower in Ironbridge. The protest was directed at the Prime Minister, calling for him to personally attend the Copenhagen summit and persuade developed nations to reduce carbon emissions by at least 40 per cent by 2020. The stunt is the first in a series of visual trespasses planned for other sites across the UK. Members of the public can enter their own pictures for the protests at www.christianaid.org.uk/trespass.
