EF! Roadshow Coming to the Redwoods June 16-18Added to the calendar on Friday Jun 5th, 2009 11:25 AM
EF! Humboldt will be setting up camp in the forest to welcome the EF! Roadshow crew. They’ve been traveling the continent for months sharing direct action skills and re-connecting and renewing the wider Earth First! movement in the U.S. . More info on the camp next week.
What’s the EF! Roadshow all about? As the roadshow crew puts it-
From the Earth First! Organizers’ Conference & Winter Rendezvous in the Sonoran desert this February to the Round River Rendezvous in Cascadia this summer, a band of eco-rebels will be crossing the US Empire to renew a fighting movement that can stop this industrial nightmare from choking the life out of the earth.
The Roadshow will be traveling with a variety of skills, topics and resources, including: forming affinity groups and planning direct action; blockading, climbing and occupations; bioregional news from campaigns and projects around the country; tools for challenging oppression; up-to-date news on resisting the Greenscare; independent and corporate media work; community organizing strategies; and more. A primary goal of the tour is to build the skill-base of our network. If you want specific areas of interests covered, let us know and we can tailor the stops to meet local/regional desires.
We also will be traveling with an array of art and culture, including musicians, puppet shows, and merchandise (stickers, books, shirts, etc.), to promote the vibrancy and visibility of radical ecological resistance.
