Two climate activists who took part in a protest at the Horse Hill oil site in Surrey last month have pleaded not guilty to obstruction.
Mags Mulowska and Venetia Carter made their plea during an appearance at Guildford Magistrates court (29 July 2020).
Their trials will take place at the same time of those for Simon Sinclair and Christopher Smith, who had previously denied trespass at the site. DrillOrDrop report
Extinction Rebellion said the protest involving all four activists, on 1 June 2020, was against government policy on fossil fuel production.
All the cases have been adjourned until 10 September 2020 for a case management hearing. A date for the trial will then be set.
Bail conditions have been changed for all four so that they can visit a monitoring post for the Horse Hill site.
