The Action Camp! Reclaim the Power 2014
Take on the frackers! The action camp will be at a fracking site and to keep the industry in suspense, the exact location and travel information will be revealed near the time. 😉 Hunt this event page for clues as they are revealed…
*Support the community fightback
*Get skilled up and take direct action
*Build the world you want to see
– This year the target is fracking – a form of ‘extreme energy’ that threatens our human rights to a safe climate, clean water and a healthy local environment.
– New fracking sites are being opened across the country every month. Up to 60% of England is under threat
– Reclaim the Power will support a community on the frontline fighting fracking and join the dots between climate, social and economic justice
– Alternatives exist here and now – we could create a million climate jobs, reduce energy demand and convert to community and publicly owned renewables
– We need to reclaim OUR power. The government wants to drill under our homes, keep us hooked on fossil fuels and keep our energy in private, profiteering hands.
– Meanwhile, climate change is getting worse, fuel poverty is killing people and economic and social crises are hitting us harder every day
– We can stop this. We can stop fracking and build a democratic and clean energy system that works for us. The UK has a long history of civil disobedience, from the suffragettes to the disability rights movements.
– We’ll share skills, meet friends, participate in workshops and take mass civil disobedience.
Get involved and get inspired – let’s take on the frackers and win!
We CAN stop fracking in the UK!
