You are warmly invited to join us at the 2023 Earth First! winter moot!
What on (middle) earth is a moot?!? The moot is a chance to get together during the cold winter months to warm our hearts and put fire in our bellies. It’s a time to reflect on what’s going on in the radical ecological movement and make plans for the year ahead. There will be workshops, tasty vegan food, some music and dancing, and very likely shit homebrew cider 😉
For new comers and old timers alike, it’s a space for anyone committed to taking aciton to defend nature. Join us!
The moot will take place in Manchester from 10-12 February. Everyone welcome from 4pm (get in touch if you want to come earlier to help set up), workshops start at 5pm. The last workshop will end at 5pm on Sunday. The workshop venue will be inside, heated. There will be sleeping space – just bring a mat and a sleeping bag! Workshops will cover everything from abolitionism, green anarchy, digital security, queer makeup, coal, and much more!
The exact location (in Manchester) will be announced that morning. It will be fuuuuuuun!
We will have a kids space and a vegan kitchen. Questions? Email us at earthfirstuk[at]riseup.net
Bring your friends (can you fill up a mini bus?), and come up for a weekend of joy and green anarchy!
To protect each other, and especially those more vulnerable, please do a Covid test before coming up to Manchester. We will have some at the welcome desk too.
Love and rage!
What is Earth First!?
The general principles behind Earth First! are non-hierarchical organisation and the use of direct action to confront, stop and eventually reverse the forces that are responsible for the destruction of the Earth and its inhabitants. EF! is not a cohesive group or campaign, but a convenient banner for people who share similar philosophies to work under.
If you agree with the above and you are not racist, transphobic, or otherwise discriminatory, if you believe action speaks louder than words, then Earth First! is for you.
Love and rage!
