Filming with Ronnie Le Drew

Robin and Ronnie copy

I had the most wonderful day yesterday making a music video down by the river for a new track about climate change called ‘Leave It In The Ground’.

Once again I was working with the amazing puppeteer Ronnie Le Drew, along with the dream team of Alex Swinfen and David Kaplowitz who helped me make my last video for David Cameron.

We have a few more days of filming to go and I look forward to sharing it with you soon.

Today is the first day of a two week trial against the 13 Heathrow activists at Willesden Magistrate's Court. The activists were met by cheering supporters before heading in to their first day in court. Amongst the many supporters was Natalie Bennett of the Green Party. A brief statement was read out by Rebecca Holly Sanderson and todays hearing only expected to hear evidence from defendant Ella Gilbert. July 13 2015 13 climate activists staged a peaceful protest at Heathrow airport against a third runway and any further airport expansions.
