We’re looking to make a carefully-planned, low-risk, but impactful action in central Nottingham which requires almost no preparation other than turning up.

If you’re fed up of feeling powerless and stressed about the climate crisis, come along. Extinction Rebellion is a global movement and you can be a part of it.

Community Climate Action Networking Event

An opportunity for community groups in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Derby focused on tackling climate change and other environmental problems to meet to share their projects, successes, struggles and ideas. There will also be workshop focused on creating and maintaining a healthy culture within groups.

The event will begin with a bring and share lunch – please bring something to share (let us know if you have any dietary requirements). NB: Sumac’s kitchen is strictly vegan, but vegetarian food can be brought into the room we are meeting in, so long as it doesn’t go into the kitchen.

We are running a similar event in Chesterfield on 23rd March. You are welcome to attend whichever event is more convenient for you, regardless of which county you live in.

Reclaim The Power Training Weekend

Training event for local anti-fracking groups.

By invitation via your local anti-fracking group, or Reclaim the Power.

Keep it in the Ground // Mobiliser Tour // Retford

After years of being pushed back by community efforts to oppose fracking, the extreme energy industry is pressing ahead with plans to extract shale oil and gas using unconventional approaches such as fracking and acidisation across England.

With commercial-scale fracking sites at Preston New Road in Lancashire and Kirby Misperton in Yorkshire becoming active, Reclaim the Power is teaming up with local campaigners to discuss strategies and tactics to oppose these destructive industries.

In North Notts, the site at Misson was recently approved for exploratory drilling and the similar decision on Tinker Lane will likely be made on February 21. Other fossil fuel extraction sites are still receiving planning permission despite government pledges to decarbonize in the 2015 Paris Agreement.

We warmly welcome anyone with an interest in stopping the shale energy industry and who is curious about ‘direct action’ – what it means and how we might use it!

Welcome to arrive for refreshments from 6.30pm, ready for a 7pm start.

Axe Drax Demo and celebration

On 22nd October, activists against coal, against forest destruction for bioenergy, and for climate justice will be protesting outside the UK’s biggest power station: Drax in North Yorkshire.

Drax burns more wood than any other power station in the world, and more coal than any in the UK, causing climate change, forest destruction and human rights abuses.

10 years ago, Drax was the site of the first Climate Camp, a direct action movement against the root causes of climate change. Several hundred people camped in a field ‘in the shadow of Drax’ to take part in a week of discussions, workshops and, above all, protests against the country’s single biggest carbon emitter. It was the start of six years of annual Climate Camps and year-round actions and protests against those most responsible for causing climate change in the UK, and experience which has continued to inspire and inform ongoing actions for climate justice …more…

Bring your banners, costumes, placards and voices – and make it clear that Drax’s greenwashing of biomass has to stop. Veggies Catering Campaign will be attending and will provide vegan burgers and cakes, as well as tea. There will be a theatre performance (a performance of “Buried Sunshine”), and speakers.
