Central Wisconsin Action Camp May 17th-19th

8 Apr

cropped-bad_river_panoramicComing to Stevens Point, Wisconsin, May 17th-19th, the Central Wisconsin Action Camp will bring together organizers and activists from the Great Lakes region to foster a culture of direct action through trainings, discussions, and workshops. We wish to challenge environmental and economic problems, including upcoming regional infrastructure projects like the Penokee Hills Iron Mine, Frac-sand Mining, the CAPX2020 transmission line, the Keystone XL and Enbridge Pipelines, Factory Farming and High Capacity Wells, the Kennecott Nickel and Copper Mine, etc.

Your ideas are needed! No special prior experience is required to participate. There are many simple yet important ways to contribute, such as sign and banner making and legal observation, but if you are feeling combative there will be climbing and blockading training as well.

Together, we will develop our understanding of the historical context of direct action in the Midwest and the skills needed to plan & execute direct action as part of a successful strategic campaign.
