Friday late afternoon and evening will be a chance to arrive, and for introductions, plus a G8 talk & film, and an Introduction to EF!
We'll be kicking off early on Saturday morning (9am breakfast) - starting with all sharing the most important reasons why we've come to Nottingham, we'll get on with some practical discussions around the EF! Action Update, the website, and the summer gathering.
From what we've all said, we'll be able in the afternoon to move on to 'where next?', plus sharing campaigns we're involved with & seeing what they need, and getting together locally and regionally with other folk who are there.
On Sunday we'll move into groups to concretely take the ideas forwards from the Saturday, from the campaigns we're already working on and what we want to do together. We'll finish at 4pm, after having shared what we've come up with. Hoorah.
Earth First! is not an organisation, but a way of using non-hierarchical organisation 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.
