EARTH FIRST! "SUMMER" GATHERING

The time has come for the eco-direct action gathering of the year - it runs from Wednesday 9th to Monday 14th September and will be held in Somerset. There are lift shares from around the country, so get on down. There will be a reception, reading library, kids' space, workshop spaces, and organic vegan food at 2 a day. We will be camping (a women-only space will be provided), so bring a tent. Limited space for parking and live-in vehicles available near to the site.

The exact location is kept secret until the day before it starts. Entrance is 10 a person, and everybody will pay this - even workshops-givers and organisers, so everything stays as cheap as possible for everyone. Strictly no dogs will be allowed on site for a variety of reasons, and there is a proposal to have no drinking of alcohol on site before dinner. Guidelines will be decided in the first site meeting.

This year, the programme will be split between workshops and large discussions covering topics such as tactics, strategy and long-term sustainability. There will also be UK and International Campaigns' Forums to give people an opportunity to tell others about their group, campaign or forthcoming actions. There will be a variety of evening entertainment - offers are always welcome.

For more information - or a map and details of how to get to the site - send a SAE to: EF! Summer Gathering, c/o Leeds EF!
The site mobile over the weekend will be 0961 367421.
