PROPOSALS FOR 2010 SO FAR
We've got a new discussion board up on the Climate Camp website with all the proposals for the regional gatherings received so far, plus some other useful texts from the Where Next? discussions. Join the discussion here:
REGIONAL GATHERINGS IN JANUARY
UK Coal ' greenwash' Durham planner's! OPENCAST looks likely (near where Winter Moot will be in February)
Money grabbing UK coal have overcome one of the largest barriers in their plans to opencast the PONT VALLEY,
OPPONENTS of a large opencast mine in a picturesque valley fear the worst now that planning permission has been granted to move a colony of Great Crested Newts – a protected species.
January Regional Gatherings
There will be no national gathering in January. Instead, we are encouraging neighbourhoods to hold their own regional gatherings in advance of a three-day national gathering in February.
Join people from across the spectrum of the British peace movement for a weekend of exploration, celebration and empowerment - learning from other movements, struggling with challenging issues, and creating greater cohesion and solidarity in a segmented peace movement.
Buy Nothing Day (Bristol, Birmingham, Falmouth, Leeds, Lincoln, Sheffield...) - Steal Something Day (everywhere)
Saturday November 28th is Buy Nothing Day (UK). It's a day where you challenge yourself, your family and friends to switch off from shopping and tune into life. The rules are simple, for 24 hours you will detox from shopping and anyone can take part provided they spend a day without spending!
EARTH FIRST! WINTER MOOT: 5th - 7th Feb 2010, County Durham - exact location released, & other info (incl. for cyclists)
"A weekend of networking, reflection, strategic discussions & campaign planning for anyone involved in ecological direct action who believes in non-hierarchical organisation and directly confronting the forces responsible for the destruction of the Earth and its inhabitants"
The climate catastrophe has not happened by random chance and the melting glacier is not its place. Our economic system, the way it produces goods, and the way they are transported and finally consumed is the root of climate change.
