Activists organising for this year's Camp for Climate Action in the West Midlands are putting on a two-day event of discussion, workshops and partying this weekend in Birmingham this weekend - Sat 9th June and Sunday 10th June.
Plane Stupid NVDA Training and Benefit Gig
Join us for some Plane Stupid fun!
Plane Stupid Sheffield is hosting two fabulous events this Sunday the 10th of June.
First, at 11am in the Octagon bar, we're having a bit of morning and an afternoon of insight into the intricacies and practicalities of non-violent direct action (NVDA) and quick consensus decision-making. If you've ever wondered what people do when they want to take meaningful action against things that they oppose, and the ins and outs of getting arrested for doing so, or how it is possible to quickly make groups decisions that everybody is in agreement on, then come along and be part of some collective and interactive education!
Pipeline and G8 solidarity protest outside court in Cardiff tomorrow as authorities attempt to evict Brecon anti-pipe tree camp.
Protesters against the monstrous pipeline plowing its way through Wales are in court tomorrow as authorities attempt to evict the 5 month old tree camp in Brecon National Park. This is just one example of how the state is fueling climate change and preventing us from protesting about it. Governments all over the world behave similarly and this week the 8 biggest leaders (G8) are meeting in Germany to make more decisions that will impose on our lives. Whilst many of our friends are in Germany protesting against this undemocratic, centralised source of power we will be protesting outside the court against all governments intruding in our lives and the environment, both locally and globally.
On Tuesday morning, June 5th, a team of five protesters and their support crew successfully halted Shells operation in Erris for five hours through the use of "lock-On" arm tubes. The blockade ended with the five being cut loose from each other by the fire brigade and arrested whilst a crowd of around thirty people cheered them on. Shramore is the final stop on the peat haulage route from the site of the proposed gas refinery at Bellanaboy.
