Northern Green Gathering 2019 (tbc)

Northern Green Gathering may be held at Bradley Nook Farm, the beautiful organic farm near Ashbourne in the Derbyshire Dales.

In 2017 Bradley Nook Farm donated its cows to Hillside Animal Rescue to live out their lives in sanctuary, and adopted a vegan organic future. We hope that this will inspire other Northern Green Gathering participants!

Northern Green Gathering is a small volunteer-run environmental/educational gathering focused around sustainable living and green campaigns.

A 4-day camping event with environmental workshops & campaigns, permaculture, organic veggie cafes, stalls, healers & alternative therapies, kids space, theatre & circus workshops, and a showcase of environment living in action, including solar power and wind power.

Stop New Nuclear – Surround Springfields

Why Here? The worlds first nuclear fuel manufacturing plant, based in a small village near Preston, carries out civil and military nuclear contracts for facilities across the UK:

  • Production of nuclear fuel
  • Storage and processing of waste (including Uranium Hexafluoride DUF6)
  • Decommissioning of plant and facilities

Through the gates of the Springfields plant pass a deadly cargo of materials which have fuelled nuclear bombs, nuclear reactors and nuclear accidents for over 70 years. These materials pose a radiological and chemical threat to human health and to the environment.

Why Now? The Government is still pressing forward with its policy of new nuclear power, despite delays, spiralling costs and even bankruptcy of the major players. Springfields would play a pivotal role in supplying these and processing the waste material. The hunt for a Geological Disposal Facility (long term radioactive waste dump) is back on nationwide, with communities in Cumbria being targetted to ‘volunteer’ their back yard for this short sighted ‘solution’ to an intractable problem.

Radioactive material is transported to and from this site nationally and internationally via road and rail. We are inviting you to take this same journey to join us in the dirty core of the UK nuclear industry for a day of protest, information sharing and solidarity. We plan to surround the site with people dressed as nuclear waste barrels – a record breaking attempt!

Following on from the decision made at the last RTP gathering, Fraction, a Sheffield based activist group, are organising a Spring gathering targeting the many fracking sites that have popped up in the Yorkshire and East Midlands area. This will be an opportunity to showcase local victories, share skills, and focus on creative solutions to the challenges facing anti-frackers in the area. This camp will take place on the 30th and 31st March 2019, leading up to a large direct action on April Fool’s Day. To build momentum for the event and link up regional groups, we are organising media and NVDA trainings to happen around the region, the first being a media training happening on the 5th January 2019.

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), animal exploitation and much more.
