Reclaim the Fields Action Camp 2015
August 28, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - September 2, 2015 @ 12:00 pm
Every two years there is also an international camp, where people from around Europe and beyond meet together to support a local struggle (standing against exploitative gold mining in Romania, and open cast coal mining in Germany, are some examples). People at these camps have shared their local stories and grown their ideas about resistance and reclaiming our food system, beyond national borders. This year, an international gathering will be held in the UK, in Borras Community Protection Camp on the Welsh/English border.
- Two days of Action – Tuesday 1st & Wednesday 2nd September – demonstrations & actions against companies involved in the construction of the North Wales prison, as well as local fracking-related targets.
- Workshops & Skillshares – Over the bank holiday weekend there will be abundant opportunities to learn, share, discuss and connect with other people.
- Building & Growing on the site – Be part of installing gardens & low impact infrastructure at the community protection camp. Learn about permaculture, agroecology, forest gardening, mushroom growing, pallet construction, compost toilet making, off-grid electrics and more.
Reclaim the Fields UK (RTF) was born in 2011, as a star in a wider constellation of food and land struggles that reaches around the globe. Since 2011, camps and other RTF gatherings have helped support local communities in struggle, share skills, develop networks, and strengthen the resistance to exploitation, in Bristol, west London, Gloucestershire, Nottingham and Fife, among other locations.
