We’re going…see you there?
Saturday March 31st – Sunday April 1st
Grow Heathrow, Vineries Close, Sipson, West Drayton, UB7 0JG (http://www.transitionheathrow.com/grow-heathrow/)
The Climate Justice Collective is now up, running and ready to take action. With people involved from across the country, we’ve made exciting plans for a mass action against the corporate control of energy in May (see below). And, at the last meeting, we made good progress on: how we can relate to the anti-cuts and Occupy movements; our organising guidelines; joining and membership processes; building the network via outreach and solidarity with other groups. This meeting will be a chance to decide collective activities for the months ahead and discuss how our network can be developed.
Day 2 | Sunday April 1st | The Big Six Energy Bash planning meeting | 11am-5pm
At a meeting in Oxford at the end of February, CJC agreed to organise a mass action on May 3rd, on the same day as CEOs of the Big Six energy companies, global oil giants and government ministers are meeting behind closed doors at the UK Energy Summit. Our action will target corporate control and the fuel poverty and climate chaos that this is driving, and will provide a platform to speak out for energy democracy. Working groups have been set up, including outreach and solidarity, publicity and action logistics. This meeting will continue planning, decision making and working group time, on issues including the action’s messaging, promotion and format.
Food: Food will be provided, but we need someone to take on coordinating food. Please email email@example.com asap if you are happy to take on doing this, or to help with cooking on the weekend.
Crash space: bring a tent, if you can, to pitch inside the beautiful Grow Heathrow community garden. Challet space is available for those without tents.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that you’re coming, and tell us if you’re planning to bring children so we know whether a kidspace is needed. Also, let us know if you’re up for coordinating food, cooking on the day or helping out with the kidspace.
