Camp for Climate Action 2007: 14th-21st August

Camp for Climate Action 2007: 14th-21st August

Climate campers are at it again! More than seventy people from around the
UK met in Leeds last weekend and decided to organise another Camp for
Climate Action this summer from 14th to 21st August. As many of you know,
for ten days last August hundreds of people gathered in the shadow of Drax
coal-fired power station in Yorkshire
(Poster Bellow) to share knowledge and inspiration
to tackle the greatest threat to life on Earth, live an example of more
just and sustainable alternatives, and confront one of the UK's biggest
polluters in a day of mass direct action.

Following on from this success, Camp for Climate Action 2007 will take place near to a target relating to: aviation or the coal or oil industries.
The location will be chosen over the coming months. Working groups have
been set up to organise outreach, fundraising, site practicalities and
workshops. Self managed camping, eating and living neighbourhoods around
themes and geographical areas are also being planned, contact details are
on the website.

There is loads to do, and everyone is invited to get involved - no
experience necessary! The next national planning meetings will be held in Leeds at The Common Place, on the 17th and 18th February, and then in Bristol on the 17th and 18th March.

The energy descent is going to take a hell of a lot of energy dissent!
