Only four months to go till the 2007 Camp for Climate Action - are you getting involved?

Get inspired, watch the Reclaim Power movie about last years camp at the rampART social centre tonight from 8pm. (see Copies are now available on DVD in this country from Rising Tide and local groups working towards this years climate camp.

The London climate camp group had a meeting last tuesday and among the issues discussed was the lack of strength in terms of people committing at this stage. This raised the prospect of joining forces with other groups from the South East to organise a neighbourhood rather than try to have London as an entity in it's own right. Contact has been made with the Brighton group but no further news yet on that.

The London group is planning on organising a fundraiser for April 28th. If you can help or have contacts with good DJs, bands, etc to draw crowds; who know about good venues; etc get in touch!

The London group has volunteered to organise the May gathering and host it in London. The dates will be the 19th and 20th May so put it in your diary now. Venue is yet to be decided. Help will be needed with the general organisation (kitchen, facilitation, etc), so step

In the meantime, this weekend is the national climate camp gathering in Bristol. Minutes of previous meetings can be found on the climate camp website

The next London meeting will be on Monday 26th March at the Institute of Education cafe. Up to now the meetings have been fortnightly, but there are plans to skip April 10th as this will be Easter tuesday and then make the meetings weekly from Tueday 17th Apri. It would be great if more people could make the meetings so that London can have a vibrant gathering and neighbourhood.
