This years Earth First! Winter Moot takes place in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. February 24th – 26th 2012. Environmentalists from across the UK and beyond will converge to discuss and debate.


(Mask up for the Class War Block!)

the walk along the wildlife corridor from Gosforth Nature Reserve to the River Tyne, Sunday Feb 12th.

Protest the outrageous proposal to build 600 houses next to Gosforth Nature Reserve, which would destroy buffer zones and block off the wildlife corridor through Jesmond Dene, along the line of the Ouseburn.

Muster at 11 a.m. at the west end of Heathery Lane (see map). Additional starting points: Gosforth Nature Reserve and Melton Park (10.30 a.m.) and West Moor Community Centre (10.15 a.m.).

The walk, following the line of the Ouseburn, will take approximately two hours, and we will stop at The Cluny for refreshments, then continue towards the Tyne, and Millennium Bridge.
