This years Earth First! Summer Gathering is fast approaching and promises as ever to be an unmissable event.
The Earth First! Summer Gathering is a five day get-together featuring workshops and discussions on the fight against ecological destruction. Workshops cover everything from permaculture to the environmental effects of the arms trade.
This years event takes place from the 19th-24th of August in the Lake District, Cumbria.
Earth First! describes its self as ‘a network of people and campaigns who fight ecological destruction and the forces driving it. We believe in doing it ourselves rather than relying on governments or industry. Direct action is at the heart of what we do, whether we’re standing in front of a bulldozer, shutting down an opencast mine or ripping up a field of GM crops.’
