Join Your Friends at Camp for Climate Action
Oh, to be young and in London for Climate Camp; gathering with other campers around the campfire singing songs and eating marshmallows at the end of the runway at Heathrow. Learning the ways of our ancestors in fire starting, fence climbing but mostly there for the solidarity of chums standing together, arm in arm for a giant game of Red Rover.
However this years camp might not be as bucolic as the last; The Airport Authority doesn't want frisbees flying over their fences and wants to keep campers far away. To be extra certain that these wild lands will remain pristine, it also wants to ban anyone involved in Airport Watch from getting too close. This is problematic, as Airport Watch is an umbrella organization covering five million citizens, including the Queen and Prince Charles. (more from Greenpeace here)
We hope the kids work through this problem and enjoy the ::Camp for Climate Action 14th August to Tuesday 21st August- "Eight days of low-impact living, debates, learning skills, and high-impact direct action tackling the root causes of climate change."
