[apologies for repost - IMC moderators haven't replied to repeated requests to promote date to top left of front page as per other gatherings]

The Earth First! Winter moot is an opportunity for people who feel affiliation with the ideas behind Earth First! to network, discuss and reflect on the ecological direct action movement and to plan for the future.

In contrast with the yearly EF! Summer Gathering, which is held outside for around five days, the winter moot is a shorter weekend meeting, inside, less aimed at skill sharing and more at looking where we are at as movement and where we want to be going.

A session is also reserved for discussing a UK mobilisation for the UN climate conference in Copenhagen late 2009. Earth First! is not an organisation, but a banner for non-hierarchical organising and the use of direct action to confront, stop and eventually reverse the forces that are responsible for the destruction of the Earth and its inhabitants. Topics that have been raised include (Updated): - the Copenhagen climate summit with a number of people from Denmark coming over to talk about logistics, tactics and mobilisation - the G20 summit in London - Leave it in the ground / coal - GM - Rossport - Strengthening the EF network: communication and security, actionupdate and gatherings - Implications of the crisis - Climate and migration / eco-activism and Noborder networks There will be a Saving Iceland meeting on the Friday afternoon before the gathering. The agenda is open. Please contact the organizing collective (moot2009 AT know if you want to add anything, want to help with facilitation or have any other queries. You are welcome to use our PGP key below. Suggestion: read the activist security guide on There will be sleeping places arranged and food available at cost price from Friday evening. The program will start on Saturday at 10 AM. Please be on time. Venue: Cowley Club, 12 London Road. (Please do not contact the Cowley Club phone nr. with information requests).
