Serious about sorting out the fossil fuel industry?


This years’ Reclaim the Power will prepare you for the next 5 years of direct action – with everything you need to get started from inspiring grassroots groups. Our ‘Ministry of Dissent’ is your one-stop shop for skilling up in taking direct action with trainers on hand all day Sunday. Learn about how to set up an energy coop or an entire autonomous region with Rojava activists. With updates from the effective grassroots campaigns of the Radical Housing Network to the rapid response work of London Black Revolutionaries, taking on the “Big 6” with Fuel Poverty Action and community mobilising with Disabled People Against the Cuts.

Kick-start your day with “80’s Disco Yoga” and find out about your legal rights. We’ve first hand news from Focus on the Global South about the Paris Climate Talks and this camp is your chance to team up with new friends and take action. With a comedy double bill and plenty of excuses to dance, come and get ready for the fight back and have a laugh along the way. There will be a kids space every day and music in the evenings. Monday 1st June will be a day of Mass Action against the fossil fuel industry.
