Climate activism is back – and we need you to be a part of it

Mass Action Planning Meeting
Saturday February 18th
Oxford
10 – 4pm
Venue: Turl Street Kitchen
We warmed-up in January – now it’s time to step it up a gear! Come to Oxford on Saturday 18th February to plan for a major climate action in May.  The target will be the ‘Big 6′ energy companies that have a monopoly over UK energy. The rest is still to be decided. Organised by Climate Justice Collective (CJC), this is a chance for activists, old and new, to start putting climate change back on the national agenda.
Heard of us?  Been out of the loop?  Feeling the need for some climate activism?  Fancy being a part of an exciting action?  Then come along.  We’ll need all the help we can get.

There is crash space (email cjc-oxford@riseup.net), food, and a lovely social – we look forward to seeing you there. The day will run from 10-4pm in the Turl Street Kitchen – please be prompt as there’s lots to do.

CJC Gathering
Sunday February 19th
Oxford
10 – 4pm
Venue: OARC, East Oxford Community Centre, OX4 1DD
If you’re interested in the group organising this, then stay for the weekend and Sunday will be a chance to participate in the CJC gathering, to work out how to build our network and continue the work we’ve been doing on how we organise.
Email climatejusticecollective@gmail.com with any other questions.
Please RSVP to cjc-oxford@riseup.net and say if you need crash space,  special facilities or have dietary requirements.
The meeting will be to discuss and decide:
– How are we going to get new people involved
– How are we going to organise together as a collective
– How will the practicalities work for things like: induction, details of membership and inclusion etcAgenda (still to be finalised)

1. What will CJC do next (3 hours)

  • ‘Energy justice/democracy discussion’

Following on from Fuel Poverty Action and Big 6 action, reflect on longer term political aims (This is one of the things we included in our priorities for the year)

  • What actions could we do, what other working groups might we need?

2. Building the CJC network (2 hours)

  • Outreach/publicity(promoting CJC and getting more people involved)
  • Local groups/national network (how to get local groups set-up. how to organise nationally, ie how often to meet etc.)
  • Membership/openness (setting up processes ie induction, membership, inclusion in group etc.)
