This year there’s a Workshop Tent, Women’s Tent and Queer Dome, Radical Parenting, Travellerspace, Exhibition of Resistance, Pedal Power demos, Cal’s Garden and South West Against Nuclear (SWAN). Tat 4 Tibet’s general store is here. The Speakers’ Forum sits on the corner opposite the Green Gathering Charity stall and Crock ‘n’ Rock crockery hire.
Every day is jam packed with discussions and workshops, with up to six sessions happening at once. The evenings are owned by the solar-powered Radical Wales DIY open mic stage: come along, have a go!
The Campaigns Field is also home to the Radical Routes Co-operators’ Camp
Imagine housing without landlords, work without bosses, organising without hierarchy and taking financial control away from the banks… Radical Routes demonstrates that the co-operative movement is a positive force for change.
In the Co-ops’ Camp you’ll find a friendly community of people involved with housing, energy, land, media and workers’ co-operatives. There’s workshops in how to set up a successful co-op; discussions about how to organise for radical social change; examples from the international co-op movement; exhibition and chill-out space; and networking events for co-operators (with free food!).
Topics covered in the Campaigns Field include:
Environment: climate change, fracking, GM
Civil liberties: undercover policing, big data, surveillance
International relations: Palestine, the war on terror and the refugee crisis
Animal rights: hunting, badger culls, vivisection, veganism
Infrastructure: nuclear power, renewable energy, sustainable development
… and a whole heap more besides.
