A weekend get-together for people involved in ecological direct action, from fighting opencast coal, fracking, GM, nuclear power to road building. There’ll be discussions and campaign planning – with the emphasis on the tactics and strategies we use, community solidarity and sustainable activism.
We are working like busy bees to put the wintermoot together and will post more information including the programme here shortly. In the meantime there is some more information below.
This year we’ll be in Lancashire, the testing ground for fracking, which is set to be rolled out across the country. The last 18 months have seen lots of local groups springing up in resistance. The weekend is also an opportunity for people from around the country and local anti-fracking campaigners to share tips and info.
Can I come? Anyone who is interested in ecological direct action will have a valuable part to play and should come. You are welcome to come to all or part of the weekend.
