Climate Camp in The City: Final Update

Final update on The Swoop, for the April 1st Climate Camp in the City

Hi campers, not long to go before we join each to set up camp in the city
on April 1st! This is the final update, please read it carefully and
forward it to all your friends who are coming…


We hope many of us will be staying overnight, please bring a popup tent,
food, 4 litres of water, warm clothes, hand cleaning gel (for hygiene, we
might not get water) and whatever you might need for 24 hours of rebel
camping adventure. (a full list is here


1) SYNCHRONIZE YOUR WATCHES: It is important that we swoop at exactly the
same time, and those arriving too late or too early might not make it in.
You can use the speaking clock or this: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com

2) PLUG IN: Sign up to text messages here:
http://www.climatecamp.org.uk/g20/text-updates You will only get text
messages if there is a change of plan.

3) PREPARE: Print out the map from http://www.climatecamp.org.uk/g20/map
and if you still need somewhere to sleep the night before check
http://www.climatecamp.org.uk/g20/sleepspace Remember that there may be
limited toilet facilities so don’t arrive with bursting bowels !!!

3) SWOOP DOWN: Arrive at 62 Bishop's Gate, the European Climate Exchange
at 12:30 on the dot. Swoop swiftly and stealthily from a location of your
choice. It might be good to avoid Bank and Liverpool Street stations where
other protest groups are meeting at 11.00am as you may be unable to leave
due to police Kettles (when police surround a crowd). Avoid kettles at all
costs and if when you get to the Climate Exchange the police invite you
into a protest pen, say “no thanks, we’ll camp elsewhere”, keep moving and
wait for text messages.

4) SPREAD INSPIRATION: You can use your phone to send reports, pictures,
audio etc from the streets to Indymedia. Its very easy – see
http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2009/03/425262.html for numbers and

If you are covering the action using twitter, please include the hashtags
#g20cc or both #g20 and #protest so we can pull tweets into one single
feed of the event.

5) AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST - ENJOY: The next few days will be extraordinary
days for extraordinary times...
