Resistance to the Nordic Mining Boom - Action Camp in Finnish North Karelia Starting 18 June 2013
Disregarding the cost to the ecosystem or the opposition of locals, the international elite has decided to sacrifice the Nordic flora, fauna and waters to fuel the growth-compulsive economy.
Determined resistance is needed to keep the environment viable. Join us to share knowledge and skills, and to act!
The camp is located ca. 30 km from the Talvivaara mine. The first week of the camp, we will share info about the mining situation in the north and explore tactics for open direct action. These skills will be put to use during the second week.
More info & updates coming at turvaverkosto.wordpress.com
Feel free to offer your own program! The camp will work in a self-organized manner, so participants are expected to do their share of running the camp. To cover costs we ask for a donation of 5-10 € per day, taking into account people's personal economic situations. Rides from more accessible locations will be arranged as often as possible. When signing up for the camp, please contact us if you would want a ride or have any other special needs, allergies etc.
Let us know you're coming by mailing email@example.com before 10th of June, if possible!
