Public meeting on climate change - 7.30pm Friends' Meeting House, St. Giles, 26th April
The Camp for Climate Action is taking place from 26th August to 4th September 2006 in the north of England, involving thousands of people.
The camp's core aims are to be an inspiring space for workshops, action, information sharing, discussion and debate and to take direct action against climate chaos. We invite people to join us - we want to bring together people campaigning against the many industries that are at the root of climate change and people promoting practical, human-scale solutions.
The camp is being organised by an 'open' group of volunteers - anyone can get involved in organising the camp and we need your help! The March organising meeting is taking place in Oxford next weekend - 11th-12th.
Climate change is happening now and is set to get much worse. Governments and corporations dream of growth without end, economy without limits. When the answer to ecological crisis is nuclear power you know there’s a problem. There is a growing grassroots movement that fundamentally challenges the fossil fuel economy.The camp will be a place for this movement to get
together. It will be a place for new people, people who have never been ‘political’ before but who want move beyond concern into activity. It will be a place for experienced activists: old and young, cynical and hopeful. We all need courage, the guts to step beyond the comfort of our concern or the borders of our group. Climate change casts a long shadow over the future. But we believe this time can be an opportunity, a moment when people come
together and say 'enough'.
