No Earth First Summer Gathering this year – instead Earth First is calling for a Summer Dispersal of Decentralised Days of Resistance.
Concerns around the spread of the virus mean we feel it’s safest not to organise a mass gathering this year but the need to actively resist capitalism and ecological destruction has never been greater.
Covid 19, climate change, racial inequality, poverty: These are all symptoms of a broken system that sees the earth’s resources as infinite, purely for human use and abuse, without a thought for the consequences, and which prioritises profit above all else and oppresses and divides people along racial, gender, class and other lines to maintain its power.
EF! statement on #COVID19 , the 2020 summer gathering & the need to take action against ecological destruction – now & always! 💚#nocompromiseindefenseoftheearth#directaction#HS2#acab1312 #fuckcapitalism#fuckthestate#fuckthepolice
