Earth First Summer Gathering 2019

The 2019 Earth First Summer Gathering is happening at a squatted rural site near Durham.

Five days of skill-sharing for grassroots ecological direct action – make links, share ideas, and get involved in the struggles against open cast coal, fracking, new roads, climate criminals and more, followed by an action on Monday.

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 will have 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 may host a PM Press Bookstall. To help Contact Veggies.

ExLibris Booksale Part Two

The 13th annual booksale in aid of three local charities continues over its second weekend

https://www.nottinghamhospitalscharity.org.uk/appeals/zephyrs-nottingham-appeal/ Zephyr’s centre offers loving care and support to families who have experienced the loss of a pregnancy or the death of a baby or child.

http://mortonhallvisitors.org.uk/ They support people detained at Morton Hall Immigration Removal Centre by providing a link to the outside world.

https://sharewearclothingscheme.org/ Sharewear provides emergency clothing, shoes and bedding to people in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire currently in crisis.

Our rescued books include: new, genre, unusual, modern and classic fiction; every non-fiction subject under the sun; books on leisure interests such as gardening, crafts, cake decoration & cookery; hardbacks and paperbacks; scarce/collectable books at lower prices than online; lots of children’s books; and the odd really weird book that you wouldn’t believe could, or maybe should, exist. There are also DVDs and handmade bags.
We always have low prices (starting at 10p), to make books accessible to everyone. Even our collectable or scarce books are priced more cheaply than online.

Stephen Booth, author and creator of the Cooper & Fry books, will open the booksale at 10am on April 26th. Be there! Be masked (if you like)!

Refreshments, including home-made cakes, in our café, “Josiah’s”.
Children may ride the “ExLibris Express”.
Claim a free raffle ticket if you arrive wearing a mask.
You are invited to bring a tin of vegetarian food, to be donated to Netherfield food bank.

We will be asking for volunteers to: bake; donate raffle prizes; help carry heavy boxes of books; circulate the poster on social media; distribute leaflets through letterboxes and posters to shops/pubs/community centres etc; mind the back garden and be Toilet Monitors, etc. We’re getting older, and appreciate help more and more each year!

Thanks everybody for all your support the previous 12 years. We hope we can rescue another load of books and support important local charities again this year.

Masky greetings.

Bread and Roses Bookfair

Bread and Roses, Five Leaves Bookshop’s celebration of independent publishing, will run in mid-November, featuring a radical bookfair at a venue to be confirmed.

Veggies foods may be provided by the venue, but there will be a Veggies Bookstall, featuring Radical Routes, Movement for Compassionate Living & Scoffer publications, and more from PM Press & Active Distribution (& maybe some snacks too).

 

 

Anarchist Studies Network

The 5th International Conference of the Anarchist Studies Network will be held at Loughborough University between 12-14 September 2018.

The central theme for this conference is DECOLONISATION, which we hope will inspire many of the presentations and panels. The purpose is twofold: to stimulate discussion of colonialism and racism as forms of oppression that anarchists oppose, but which continue to be felt in anarchist organising; and to welcome individuals, groups and communities who have not previously participated in ASN events.

Find more details and submit papers for discussion via anarchistnews.org  pending the posting of details on the Anarchist Studies Network website.

Veggies food logo  Veggies are pleased to cater for this event, as we did in 2008, 2012, 2014 and 2016.

Stalls from individuals, non-hierarchical groups and campaigns, grassroots unions, independent and non-commercial booksellers, artists, publishers and distributors. Priority given to those active in class struggle, antifascism, anti-oppression, environmentalism and mutual aid.

We ask participants to endorse our statement of common principles

We want everyone attending this event to feel safe, comfortable and included. We reject hierarchy and coercion, we do not use or tolerate oppressive language: ableism, homophobia, racism, transphobia, sexism, snobbery or otherwise. We do not make excuses for sexual abuse or authoritarian regimes. We respect each other’s boundaries. We may ask people to modify their behaviour or take it elsewhere.

London Radical Bookfair

The Alliance of Radical Booksellers are hosting the London Radical Bookfair at Goldsmiths University, New Cross, featuring the annual Bread and Roses award for radical literature. More info to follow on Website & Facebook.

The event showcases the depth and breadth of radical publishing and bookselling in the UK. The ARB is composed of booksellers with a range of subject interests, including socialism, anarchism, peace/pacifism, sex & gender, environment, anti-racism and progressive childrens writing: we intend for the London Radical Bookfair to represent the full spectrum of radical publishing.

Due to other commitments food and drink will NOT be available from Veggies Catering Campaign this time!
