Earth First Summer Gathering 2018

The 2018 Earth First Summer Gathering is to be held at a rural site in Sussex (accessible by public transport).

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!

The Gathering has parallel workshops coordinated as an embedded UK Animal Rights Gathering.

Veggies Food is HereVeggies will coordinate Campaign Catering, as well as a cafe space, tuck shop, vegan cake baking workshops and will host the PM Press Bookstall. To help Contact Veggies.

Block Around the Clock: Mass camp and action

“If you like it then you shouldn’t put a rig on it.” – Beyoncé

This summer we’re stepping up the disruption with a BLOCK AROUND THE CLOCK, as part of our mass action camp against fracking. Come and join us as we return to Preston New Road near Blackpool to stop Cuadrilla’s dastardly fracking plans once again.

Weds 27 June to Sunday 1 July
Get the dates in your diary, more details to follow soon!

Time and again, local communities have shown the shale gas industry it has no social license to frack in the UK. But the Conservatives are continuing their plan to force this dirty drilling on communities. With a long winter behind us and fracking proposed to start soon at Preston New Road, it is now more important than ever to show the locals of Lancashire that we stand with them.

This Reclaim the Power mass action and camp is part of the United Resistance, a bold 3 months of action organised by Lancashire locals. They are calling on anti-frackers from across the country to join them and take action, with at least one action per week planned between April and June. For more information check: https://www.facebook.com/UnitedResistanceUK/

If you’re wondering why you should care about fracking, why Preston New Road is a key frontline in the resistance against dirty fossil energy, and why direct action is necessary – watch this brand new documentary http://player.lush.com/tv/power-trip-film-zoe-broughton-and-paul-oconnor

Reclaim the Power is a UK-based direct action network fighting for social, environmental and economic justice. We aim to build a broad-based movement, working in solidarity with frontline communities to effectively confront environmentally destructive industries and the social and economic forces driving climate change.

Free film screening: Power Trip: Fracking in the UK

ower Trip: Fracking in the UK (63mins) takes you onto the frontlines of UK resistance in the battle to stop the controversial energy extraction process known as Fracking.

Undercurrents productions show what happens beyond the few seconds glimpsed on the mainstream TV news. We follow grandmothers who set up a campaign group (Lancashire Nanas ) and teamed up with younger activists (Reclaim the Power) to shut down the Fracking sites of Cuadrilla. Blackpool (Lancashire) and Balcombe (West Sussex) became the frontline of Fracking resistance as trucks are occupied and gates are blocked.

We also explore how social media is being used by both Fracking companies and activists. We hear from energy experts, journalists and key politicians amongst the voices of local residents and councillors.

Part of a UK tour.

Earth First! Winter Moot

You are invited to attend the Earth First! Winter Moot, a gathering for people involved or wanting to know more about ecological campaigning and direct action in the UK.

Earth First! is a banner for independent groups who share a common need to protect our ecological systems. We believe in non-hierarchical direct action, to stop and reverse the forces responsible for the destruction of the earth and its inhabitants.

Those taking their first steps into ecological campaigning are warmly welcomed. There will be debates, discussions on campaign planning, updates, support and solidarity, tactics, strategies, community building, sustainable activism and networking including groups campaigning against fracking, incineration, new roads, GM (genetic engineering) and much more..

The Moot agenda will include planning the Earth First Summer Gathering.
