Earth First Summer Gathering 2022

The Earth First Summer Gathering is back!

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, HS2, climate criminals and more.

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 may have parallel workshops coordinated as an embedded UK Animal Rights Gathering.

Veggies Food is HereVeggies will coordinate a diy cafe space, tuck shop, vegan cake baking workshops, with main catering coordinated by Eat First!. To help Contact Veggies.

Vegan Organic Fest 2022

The  Vegan Organic Fest 2022 is back!

The on site cafe will be serving meals with veganic veg from local grower Rich Hardy. There will be homemade cakes and raw delights.

Activities will include:

Yoga, tai chi, gong baths, foraging, silent disco, fire, talks and discussion, live music, veganic food, arts and crafts, circus skills, trampolining, sauna and swimming pool.

The Vegan Organic Fest will be at Chyan Cultural Centre; an eleven acre site deep in the Cornish countryside with a capacity of about 200 people, camping facilities, on site hostel and nearby alternative accommodation.

Chyan is an off grid veganic apple farm with its own supply of spring water. The venue hosts many events and is a wonderful place for returning to nature, some of the land is wild, some is nature reserve and there is plenty of flat meadow for camping.  Chyan has a 200-seater geodesic dome theatre, two large modern barns for classes plus several marquees. The centre has its own wind turbine, which provides electricity for the whole site and its the hot showers. The swimming pool and sauna are all fed by natural spring water.  We are blessed to be able to hold the festival in such a beautiful, peaceful and positive space. https://chyan.org/.

Report from Vegan Organic Fest 2021

The event is from midday on Thursday 18th August- Monday 22nd August with activities happening from Friday-Sunday.

Nottingham Vegan Markets – Vegan Traders Directory

The next fully vegan market in Nottingham is  Sherwood Vegan Market on Saturday 9th April. See their website for details of the 40+ stalls attending the February Market. Many of the traders are in a Sherwood Vegan Stallholders Group.

The next event by Nottingham based, vegan market organisers, Rainbow Monkey Events 🌈 is Chesterfield Vegan Market on Sunday 8 May.

Nottingham Vegan Market News

 

On 31st October, 2015, in advance of World Vegan Day, Sneinton Market held an event to showcase great tasting vegan food. Following this a monthly vegan market in Nottingham was launched on 5th December 2015. Sneinton Vegan Market became the established event to regularly celebrate and showcase great tasting vegan food and drink, crafts, animal rescues & other products/services. However it has sadly lost its way and is no longer in tune with the values of the vegan community.

Meanwhile there are many Nottingham vegan market traders that helped establish that market and deserve our continued support.

2022 sees a new era for Vegan Markets in Nottingham with West Bridgford Vegan Market on 1st Saturday Monthly and Sherwood Vegan Market moving to a larger venue from May.

Zapatista Journey for Life

https://twitter.com/veggiesnottm/status/1456380521739689989

What is the ‘Journey for life’?

On 1st January 2021 Indigenous Mayan Zapatistas published a declaration for life announcing an ‘invasion’ of Europe, a mission of solidarity and rebellion to mark 500 years since colonisation. The objective of this “Journey for Life” is to have meetings, dialogues, exchanges of ideas, and experiences with all who are committed, from different perspectives and fronts, to dismantling capitalism, as well as patriarchy, racism, imperialism, colonialism, and other violent systems that destroy life.

The North of England and the Midlands section of the tour will only be 4 days – 28th to 31st October.

  • Thurs 28th: Bradford
  • Friday 29th: Midlands gathering hub at Nottingham Sumac Centre
  • Sat/Sun 30/31st: Manchester & Liverpool

We will host a visit of a 7-person delegation at Nottingham’s Sumac Centre on Thursday 28th/Friday 29th. They will take a day trip to Bradford on the Thursday but we invite all interested groups and individuals to contact us to get involved to make the most of this unique once in a half millennium opportunity! We have space for people from around the region to relay their stories to the Zapatistas, but also to meet and network with each other. There is space to stop over before and/or after if that helps people traveling from outside of Nottingham.

Restrictions: The Zapatistas are very strict about anonymity and also about COVID security, given how badly it would affect the international tour if any of them were to catch it. This Guidance document gives you an idea of their requirements and an idea of the kinds of things they want to hear about and speak about.

More Nottingham details here.

There’s also a crowdfunder and an Etsy shop in solidarity with the Zapatista Journey for Life .

Invitation to meet with Zapatista delegation, Nottingham, 29 October

Hi everyone

We would love for people and projects from across the Midlands, Yorkshire and the North-East to meet with the Zapatista delegation which is touring the UK & Ireland at the moment. For example people from Our Future Leeds/Leeds Climate Action going to join their day in Nottingham on Friday 29th October, together with members of the Landworkers Alliance.

Here’s some Zapatista background:
The Zapatista National Liberation Army (EZLN in spanish) is an indigenous Maya organisation from Chiapas in the southern mountains of Mexico, who, in 1994, claimed autonomy from the Mexican government in multiple communities in Chiapas – they have managed to maintain these autonomous areas ever since.  Their struggle is against neo-liberal capitalism/earth destruction, against the discrimination against and repression of indigenous peoples, and in favour of dignity, women’s equality and sovereignty over land and food.

The Journey for Life is a fact-finding and relationship-building mission – 200 Zapatistas have come to Europe to meet people/groups/communities ‘from the left and below’, to find common ground, to explain more about their historical and current struggles, to find out what life is like for people in resistance here and to build alliances.

We, some individual Zapatista supporters in the North/Midlands, planning the tour in our region, are hosting a delegation of 6 Zapatista men. 

The tour programme has been drastically cut due to the new COVID travel restrictions, so we now only have 2 days in Yorkshire/Midlands, of which one day (the 28th in Barnsley) is devoted to union and community organising past & present, the legacy of Thatcher and the miners’ strike, police infiltration (Orgreave) and co-operative intentional communities.

Nottingham, 29 Oct:
That leaves us one day (29th) for other groups from the North East and Midlands and for issues not covered by other host locations.  We hope our day will include some municipalist strategic projects, some land-related stuff (Land Workers Alliance) and bits and bobs of other stuff, perhaps including solidarity economy and perhaps including a couple of folks from a traveller organisation.

We encourage all participants to attend for as much of the day as they can.  We are developing a loose programme where each topic/project is covered at a roughly set time and that the Zapatistas will talk about their history, principles and political strategy for a couple of hours in the middle of the day.

It’s helpful for the Zapatistas to understand the difficulties that nearly all political projects on the left are grappling with, so come along with a critical perspective when you join us.

The discussions will be held between Neds Housing Co-operative and the Sumac Centre co-operative Social Club in Forest Fields.

Restrictions: The Zapatistas are very strict about anonymity and also about COVID security, given how badly it would affect the international tour if any of them were to catch it.  I attach sections of the Guidance we’re working from, to give you an idea of their requirements and an idea of the kinds of things they want to hear about and speak about.
