Saturday 11 November from 10.30-6pm in the BRADFORD RESOURCE CENTRE followed by
food and socialising in the 1 in 12 social centre. For practical details see below and check our website http://www.eco-action.org/northern/
Please pass this invite on!
The world is on the point of ecological collapse: global temperature rise, species extinction, nuclear waste dumping, depletion of natural resources, deforestation, to name just a few problems. These will not be solved by governments (who make it worse by warring for the remaining resources), but by the people and communities working co-operatively..
Come to the gathering if you want to do something about this. It doesnt matter if you are a total novice or an experienced activist. Inaction will result in collective suicide for humankind and the planet.
Workshops and discussions on:
*A round-up of what's going on in different places, who's doing what and ideas for actions
*Sharing skills: getting together a local group/network, legal training, security, strategy
*Planning eco-actions and campaigns in the North
*How we can support each other: networking, working together
The idea for the gathering came out some Northern folks meeting at the Earth First gathering. The aim is make better links between people into taking ecological direct action, share skills and plan new campaigns and actions.
We've now got a confirmed venue, the very nice and fully accessible Bradford Resource Centre, 17-21 Chapel St, BRADFORD, BD1 5DT, a link to a map can be found here: http://www.brc-net.org.uk
It's only 5 minutes walk from Bradford Interchange. For more detailed travel descriptions check our website nearer the time
We're having to pay for this venue so we'll be asking everyone to make a donation of £2-10.
Please let us know if you are coming and also if you want to run a workshop or discussion. Some of us will try and cook some vegan food, but it'd be great if everyone could bring some (vegan) nosh to share for lunch and dinner.
After dinner we can head over to the 1 in 12 social centre for a chat and a drink.
If you need a place to stay overnight, then please get in touch as we may be able to sort something out.
See you there!
