On Wednesday 26th August, the Camp for Climate Action will take back the
city of London in a massive public swoop.
Everyone is welcome to join us, as we converge on the secret location
where the camp will rise. This summer, we are swooping together, and
together we will transform a part of London into the physical
manifestation of our desired worlds.
WHAT: We'll get ready to swoop from scattered locations around London.
We'll be roaming about, seeing who we can pick up along the way.
There'll be twists, turns, sneaking and outreaching. Then when the time
is right, you'll receive a message revealing the secret location of the
camp, and the race will be on!
WHEN: Be ready and waiting in London, from 12 noon on Wednesday 26th
August, the day before the first advertised day of the Camp.
WHERE: We'll gather at multiple, as yet undisclosed meeting points
around the city. Subscribe to the SMS service to find out where the
meeting points will be... and join the facebook swoop group.
For now, we'll have to keep you in the dark a little. But it's going to
be amazing, so make sure you get signed up!
HOW: The exact location of the camp will be announced in three different
ways. Sign up to the text message service, or if you can get twitter on
your phone, join http://twitter.com/climatecamp. We'll also send an
email to the climate camp newsletter list:
WHO: Everyone is welcome, and even if you've never been to a climate
camp, you'll find it easy to join in! To be successful we need massive
numbers, so please arrive with as many of your friends as possible.
Tell everyone you know! The camp is organised into neighbourhoods, and
your neighbourhood is probably already planning to swoop together, so
...to contact people in your area.
As global disaster looms, politicians and financiers are falling over
each other to resuscitate the same doomed economic system that has
driven us to the edge of environmental meltdown. Join us in taking
action for climate justice!
