website has not been updated for some years. This website has been left as it
may still contain useful content.
Ecological Direct Action - Places to goIt's always been the purpose
of these pages to provide info for people to get involved in action, to make
contacts in the real world with people of a like mind and thus release the
energy they have in positive ways that will ultimately bring down this imposed
system we live in so we can build our own futures. All over the world people
are getting together and defying the growing culture of control that is trying
to take over our lives and freedom.
It isn't always easy to find people near you though. Then you have three
choices: Keep trying, give up, or go somewhere else. This section is for the
third option. Here we will list (and try to keep up to date) currently active
campaigns which want people to come and join in. Events and other things like
one-off days of action can be found out about via the contacts pages; what's listed here you could
travel a long way for.
Remember nothing on the web is very reliable. Always contact someone by
phone or email, or snail mail before traveling. A slightly fancier page might
follow, but the important thing is to get the info up here.
Infoshops Network has been set up as a
resource by - and for - autonomous centres, infoshops, free cafes, reading
rooms, etc. These pages are gradually being put together as a start to a
central database of information - contacts, news, views, ideas, skills,
publications, and other useful resources.
- St David's Wood
A road protest site was set up at the end of Jan,, 2004 to save St David's
Wood, an Ancient Woodland in Blackwood, near Cardiff. Hundreds of young trees
