Autumn EF! Action Update out - and advance notice of the Winter Moot, 22-24 February (gathering of eco-activists), Nottingham
The latest issue of the quarterly EF!AU was dished up at the Anarchist Bookfair - bursting at the seams, it had to be turned into a bumper issue, with a round-up of the actions around the time of the Camp for Climate Action, plus loads of action reports from around the world since then - from pieing oil executives, blockading garages & airports, polar bears locking-on, sabotage, prisoners, occupied spaces, digger-diving, GM crop-trashing, to cake and the cunning use of mung beans (oh, and of course, much much more).
14th October 2007 early demo report: nearly 30 people took part in the London leg of the worldwide anti-McDonald's day. It started at noon at the Leicester Square McDonald's. There was a Ronald McDonald attacking a person dressed as a cow. The cow went down well with the kids and even some adults! Lots of leaflets were handed out and the public seemed to be receptive on the whole. Also, the police were noticeable by their absence. The demo moved onto the Shaftesbury Avenue McDonald's and finished at about 3.30.
There is a national day of action at the Shell site at Bellanaboy, County Mayo, Ireland. For those who cant make the demo- solidarity actions are also being called for...
