PROPOSALS FOR 2010 SO FAR
We've got a new discussion board up on the Climate Camp website with all the proposals for the regional gatherings received so far, plus some other useful texts from the Where Next? discussions. Join the discussion here:
REGIONAL GATHERINGS IN JANUARY
January Regional Gatherings
There will be no national gathering in January. Instead, we are encouraging neighbourhoods to hold their own regional gatherings in advance of a three-day national gathering in February.
Join people from across the spectrum of the British peace movement for a weekend of exploration, celebration and empowerment - learning from other movements, struggling with challenging issues, and creating greater cohesion and solidarity in a segmented peace movement.
Buy Nothing Day (Bristol, Birmingham, Falmouth, Leeds, Lincoln, Sheffield...) - Steal Something Day (everywhere)
Saturday November 28th is Buy Nothing Day (UK). It's a day where you challenge yourself, your family and friends to switch off from shopping and tune into life. The rules are simple, for 24 hours you will detox from shopping and anyone can take part provided they spend a day without spending!
Update: 3 or 400 people came and massed. We caused cycle traffic jams for ourselves, but actually managed to ride more freely when we got onto the 3 lane dual carriageways - ah, first time I've been glad to ride on those!
October Critical Mass and Halloween Party
On Friday 30th October we shall be having a SPOOOOKTASTIC CRITICAL MASS AND AN AFTER PARTY!!!!
