Five days of skill-sharing for grassroots ecological direct action - make links, share ideas, and get involved in the run up to the Paris climate summit, and struggles against fracking, new roads and more.
On Wednesday (3/6/15) it was announced that UK Coal's application to mine 520,561 tonnes of coal from a site called Bradley, was approved.

Exciting plans are taking shape. Get involved by coming along to the EF! Winter Moot in Bristol.
