Croatan Earth First! Locks Down Against Fracking

23 Oct

Croatan Earth First! lock-down in front of state office building in Raleigh, NC

Seven members of Croatan Earth First! and participants from our Piedmont Direct Action Camp locked together today, barricading the front of North Carolina’s Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) building in downtown Raleigh. Providing physical, active resistance against fracking in North Carolina, CEF! has chosen DENR for an action as they are responsible for helping legalize fracking, and will be responsible for regulating it. They have also hired a corrupt Mining and Energy Commission board, which includes people with vested interests in hydraulic fracturing occuring. We are letting them know that this farce won’t stand! No compromise in defense of Mother Earth!

Action Camp Flyer

Croatan Earth First! is hosting a direct action training camp this fall Oct 20-21st at a local veggie farm near Pittsboro, NC. There will be tent camping available for the weekend, and people are free to come and go.  Plan to stay until Monday morning!  This camp will provide us with the opportunity to teach others skills that, we hope, will enhance their ability stop fracking from operating in our bioregion and to bring new energy into any environmental campaign you’d like to work on.

2013 EF! Round River Rendezvous

8 Aug


We are thrilled to announce that Croatan Earth First! will be hosting next summer’s rendezvous in North Carolina.

We’re already scouting out some beautiful locations that will have lots of swimming and hiking. The location will most likely be in the Piedmont or the Eastern end of the mountainous regions. We’re hoping to bring in more primitive skills and plant/mushroom identification to the next gathering. We’re looking for folks to host workshops, and to submit ideas for workshops/panels they’d like to see. We’re going to need lots of funds to put on the rondy, and we’ve already begun fundraising with a recent puppet show that brought in 400 dollars. If you have access to money please consider donating to our wepay. If you have money you can put aside for us as bail money, that will also make a difference with our upcoming action next summer, and you can get that money back!

How you can help:

Donate material support: tarps, rope, climbing gear, walkie talkies, water filtration systems, REI Gift cards, bail money, money for supplies. Bring your mountain bikes, canoes or kayaks for others to use over the week.

Donate your time: Offer to host a workshop, or to help with the kitchen crew, help us haul supplies in or out of the forest with your truck. Help with set up/breakdown/clean-up before or after the gathering.

Offer workshop ideas or speakers by e-mail suggestions to croatanearthfirst (at) gmail.com
