Protesters are aiming to shut down Kingsnorth power station on the Medway estuary in Kent this weekend.
They oppose the decision of its owner, the energy company E.ON, to replace the ageing site with a brand-new coal-fired power station - the first such to be built in Britain for 30 years.
The protesters are hoping that their week-long demonstration will inspire others to follow in their green footsteps.
Arrests in power station protest
Fifty people have been arrested during a day of action at Kingsnorth power station in Kent.
Police said four activists managed to breach the perimeter fence, but they were intercepted inside the grounds of the plant on the Hoo peninsula.
Another four people were arrested trying to launch a boat on the River Medway and 123 campaigners were rescued from the water.
