Hackney residents to go on next Climate Camp

IT was great to read the [online] article (about why Lynn [Chambers] decided to go to the Camp for Climate Action. It was an amazing week of discussions, workshops, music, and most importantly for me, training.

The Camp trained up hundreds of new activists, who, like Lynn and me, will be heading North to shut down Ratcliffe-on-Soar coal-fired powerstation on 17 October.

Hackney’s going to be well represented, and along with other residents, we’re planning to use our creativity to make it a beautiful (and powerful) event.

Anyone interested, head to Climate Camp for more information. See you there!
