Christian-based direct action gathering, 27-29 July 06, Leeds


Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. You have condemned and murdered innocent men, who were not opposing you. (James 5:1-6)

Schipol 06 Action 1
Schipol 06 Action 2
Schipol 06 Action 5

The Dutch did direct action for European Day of Action against Aviation. They invaded Schipol Airport under the cover of darkness and blocked the taxiway for three hours by locking themselves on using a variety of instruments. Meanwhile, Belgians let off black helium balloons in the terminal building, French wandered about the airport in night clothes, armed with leaflets. An ASBO was served on Luton airport, and there were other events around the UK & the rest of Europe.

Climate change will transform life on Earth without action now. We are currently on course for a 3C degree rise in temperature, which is likely to mean the deaths of 400 million of the world's poorest people, and a social crisis that will engulf us all. And still the insane machine rumbles on: political clichés about sustainable growth, full steam ahead for nuclear power, the new Airbus, civil war in Iraq, the gridlocked motorways rumbling towards oil depletion…

massive climate chaos direct action - Reclaim Power, 31st August

Visualise Industrial Collapse

Governments can't deal with the challenge!
Climate change is the greatest threat to ever face humanity and its happening now. Governments and big business dream of continued economic growth so won't deal with the crises. What we really need is a fundamental shift in the way we live - AWAY from consumer society, continued economic growth and power concentrated in the hands of the few. TOWARDS locally based, grassroots, community solutions.
