John Jordan sent me this note this morning. It smells like a May 68 spirit, revisited at the time of climate apocalypse:

Dear creative resisters, art activists, rebel dreamers, climate crime busters and caravaners,

The Future is Not What It Used to Be – A weekend of Creative Construction for the Camp for Climate Action Caravan – East London 14th-15th June.

From Saturday 14th to Sunday 15th June, we are holding a weekend workshop to begin the process of building the creative elements of the Camp for Climate Action’s Caravan.

The Caravan (27th July – 3rd August) is part of the build up to this year’s Climate Camp and will be traveling by foot, sea and bike from Heathrow Airport to Kingsnorth power station where the Camp will be set up.


Invitation to the Camp for Climate Action at Kingsnorth Power Station
August 3-11 2008

Low-impact living // education // high-impact direct action

This summer the Camp for Climate Action will pitch its tents outside Kingsnorth coal-fired power station in Kent for a week of education, sustainable living and direct action. Everyone is invited to the camp, which is now part of an international movement, with eight climate camps on four continents planned for this summer. Together, we will show that the blind pursuit of economic growth at any cost is simply insane, and is to blame for the CO² emissions and ecosystem destruction that are causing catastrophic climate change.
