Coffee, the activist who stopped the train, is facing serious charges for taking action, with risk of a long time in prison.

The action

In November 2021, a member of the Axe Drax coalition halted a wood pellet train going to Drax Power Station outside Selby. Dressed in bright orange hi vis and carrying a Extinction Rebellion flag the activist climbed on top of the train to send a clear message to COP26: stop the fell. Banners emblazoned with the words ‘Forests Are Not Fuel’ and ‘Moratorium on Tree Felling’ lined the tracks.
