Derby Sabs People’s Kitchen Fundraiser

A delightful dish is cooked and served at the Sumac Cafe by a different volunteer team each Saturday at 7pm until all gone.

Breaking the Frame 2015

Breaking the Frame 2015 is gathering/conference at Unstone Grange near Sheffield, with campaign catering by Veggies.

The gathering brings together a network of individuals and campaign groups focusing on the politics of technology.

If you’re interested in climate change, food sovereignty, extreme/renewable energy, nuclear power, surveillance, military technology, GM food, trade union issues, alternative technologies get in touch.

The 2015 Breaking the Frame gathering is just one week away (9th to 12th July). We have an exciting programme with speakers from RisingTide, ETC Group, The Gaia Foundation, Hazards Magazine, the Open Rights Group and many others. There will be a mixture of panels on issues like gender and the politics of technology, alternative technology, and technology and sustainable futures, and workshops on the technology politics of food, energy, surveillance, health, etc. We’ve managed to combine a packed programme with plenty of time for relaxing in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside, and there will be food by Veggies, real ale and evening entertainment. Breaking the Frame is the place to be if you want to be part of the growing technology politics network.

We encourage you to book in advance, especially if you want a bed in the house; however, it’s OK if you decide to turn up on the spur of the moment. We hope you’ll be able to stay for the whole gathering: because we are trying to build the network and make links between different issues, we would prefer that. But if you can’t manage that, of course you’re welcome to come for the day.

Please help us by forwarding this email to friends and networks you are part of.

We look forward to seeing you at Breaking the Frame!

Earth First Summer Gathering

The Earth First! Summer Gathering is the place where people involved in radical ecological direct action – or those who want to be involved – get together for five days of time and space to talk, walk, share skills, learn, play, rant, find out what’s going on, find out what’s next, live outside, strategise, hang out, incite, laugh and conspire.

The workshops, networking and planning of actions at this low impact eco-living camp is organised non-hierarchically. It’s run without leaders by everyone who comes along, so come prepared to chip in! It’s already pretty exciting, with people from Frack Off and Reclaim the Power fully involved in organising.
