Katuah Earth First! is hosting a Spring Rendezvous for the Southeast Region, April 19 -23, 2012 near Erwin, TN. The location and directions will be posted here once a site a has been chosen, so please check www.katuahearthfirst.org for updates. Be assured though, we have a lot to fight for. Our forests and wilderness are under assault. Our water is being poisoned and privatized. Mountain Top Removal coal mining is just a fly rock away. Fracking is happening, coal ash and toxic sludge is piling up everywhere, and we have all things nuclear, including commercial power, weapons facilities, and radioactive waste from around the planet being transported, processed, and disposed. Make your 2012 Earth Day more meaningful than ever…
Although this gathering is focused on the Southeast, Katuah Earth First! invites all Earth Firsters to come and share their part of the bigger picture during our long weekend Regional Rondy. EF! Circles, allied organizations, and friends from across the Southeast are gathering to present local issues, concerns, report backs, to help build a regional picture of strategy and tactics appropriate for the South.
We are planning the mornings, afternoons, and nights right now and would like your input on relevant Issues, possible skills and tactics trainings, and how you see yourself able to contribute. No one will be turned away for lack of funds, although we would appreciate donations, on a sliding scale between$15-$75. This would help to support the community kitchen and meals we’ll provide. Come as prepared as you can. See this as an exercise in self sufficiency. Be ready to hike into the campout with personal water for 3-4 days and food contributions to the kitchen for communal meals. If all you can do is get there then come anyway. We’ll have tasks for volunteers.
If you’re interested in putting your input into the planning process, and we’d be excited if you did, please check out our planning survey.
We look forward to seeing as many of you radical environmentalists and direct actionistas as possible. There will be No Compromise In Defense of the Earth!
For the Earth,
Katuah Earth First!
