massive climate chaos direct action - Reclaim Power, 31st August

Reclaim Power flier front

Visualise Industrial Collapse

Governments can't deal with the challenge!
Climate change is the greatest threat to ever face humanity and its happening now. Governments and big business dream of continued economic growth so won't deal with the crises. What we really need is a fundamental shift in the way we live - AWAY from consumer society, continued economic growth and power concentrated in the hands of the few. TOWARDS locally based, grassroots, community solutions.

July 15 International Day of Direct Action against Climate Change and the G8!

July 15th will be an International Day of Action Against Climate Change. As G8 energy ministers promise trillions in new subsidies to the industries destroying our planet and our future, we will take action to shut them down! This is a call for autonomous, decentralized actions appropriate for your town, city, or bioregion.

Critical Masses going strong in Newcastle

6.05.2006

Today saw the latest of Tyneside's monthly critical masses which take place on the 1st Saturday of the month, meeting 12noon at Haymarket.

Another glorious hot day spent with new friends going round the city centre streets. We forgot flags and leaflets this time but created quite a spectacle anyway, with the occasional lone cyclist or rollerblader joining in spontaneously. The driver of 'Corporate Hospitality' coaches wasn't too happy though, hee hee.

McDonalds driven out of Newcastle

McDonalds tried to film their latest ad campaign in Newcastle, but found themselves besieged by fat clowns and others determined not to let them use Newcastle as part of their brand. Shooting was gloriously interrupted in town, and they were completely prevented from filming on the Quayside.

activist trauma gathering, 4th February, London

Activist Trauma Network logo

Saturday 4th February 2006 10am-5pm

The Activist Trauma Network is organising a day of discussion and networking for all who are involved in promoting practical mutual support in activist, campaigning and community groups. This is an ever expanding area, as political work of any kind can be extremely demanding on every level. Many, but not all of us, became involved in this work by having first hand experience of trauma related to activism, police brutality, burn-out, stress-related physical illness and mental health issues. We are planning to discuss our own chosen work in these areas and expand on ideas we may have for projects, make new contacts and give/receive constructive feedback.
