2024 summer gathering

30th ever EarthFirst! summer gathering in the UK!


πŸ’œ We are very excited to announce the 30th ever Earth First! summer gathering in the UK! From 25th-29th July at Crabapple, a gorgeous community orchard in Shrewsbury in the West Midlands. We invite you to five days of workshops, skill shares, solidarity, socialising, and conspiring the destruction of capitalism, patriarchy, and all the forces of domination of humans and nature ✊

🌈 It’s a space for radical thinkers, rebellious souls, and curious minds, bringing people together to strengthen and spread the radical ecological resistance movement across these northern isles that we call home. Join us! ☺️

🌱 Learn about current and past environmental struggles here and around the world, about (anti-)repression and movement victories, green anarchism and biocentrism, queer ecology and anti-colonial land justice. Or get your hands dirty in some of our more practical workshops, from direct action, skills to solar power, night navigation, tech security and more. Or just relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and let loose on the dance floor! πŸͺ©πŸ•Ί
