Bringing light & inspiration to the darker evenings are the action stories in the latest Earth First! Action Update.

Blockades of nuclear power, roads & rivers around the world were joined "with this Shell-blockading D-lock I thee wed".

And if anti-fascist action, quarry sabotage, squats, tree platforms, wrekin' opencasts, scaling luxury hotels & the latest protest camp news wasn't enough for you, chuck in some glue, arm tubes, a pool of oil, stink bombs, airborne rape alarms and a Lego-sized occupation, then there's full reports from this summer's antics at the Camp for Climate Action, Rossport solidarity camp, EF! summer gathering and Saving Iceland camp, plus a crop of global climate camps & news of protest & resistance from all 5 continents.

"No nukes, no coal, no kidding" - with people dying (both literally & symbolically) from the activities of the Earth-destroyers, people have been shouting to just "Leave it in the Ground", dragon boats have clashed with navy gunboats in Ireland, an oil war was declared in Nigeria, and 'moles' spent a week underground digging further and further away from the forces of darkness at an open-cast coal site.

Details of the new Coal Action Network, upcoming dates & a full contact list should help launch (or boost) you into the orbit of eco-resistance.
