20-22 February: Earth First! Winter Moot in Bristol

The Earth First Winter Moot in Bristol is “a weekend gathering for people involved or wanting to know more about ecological direct action around the UK including fighting opencast coal, fracking, GM, nuclear power, new road building and quarries with discussions and campaign planning – emphasis on the tactics and strategies, community solidarity and sustainable activism.”

Workshops include: Intelligent resistance: its strategy and implementation in the modern world, Sustaining resistance: avoiding burnout, Reclaim the Power meets Earth First,  Legal defence monitoring and a Campaigns go-round.

It’s at the Kebele Community Centre and for a sliding scale of £20-£30 includes vegan meals and accommodation. Kicks off at 7pm on Friday with dinner followed by films and an introduction to EF! Shame I won’t be there.

Their website says: “Earth First! is a network of people and campaigns who fight ecological destruction and the forces driving it. We believe in non-hierarchical organising of Direct Action, to confront, stop and eventually reverse the forces that are responsible for the destruction of the Earth and its inhabitants. EF! is not a cohesive group or campaign, but a convenient banner for people who share similar philosophies to work under and doing it ourselves rather than relying on governments or industry.”
