2013 Earth First! Round River Rendezvous in North Carolina July 1-8th

rondy11x17From Earth First! Newswire

The Round River Rendezvous is the annual gathering of the Earth First! Movement.  Each Summer, this week-long camp-out attracts several hundred Earth First!ers from around the world. The gathering is coordinated by a volunteer committee and includes workshops, campaign discussions, campfire music and a rally with performers and speakers. Perhaps the most important part of the Round River Rendezvous is the informal networking that goes on.  These gatherings are particularly important for developing a cohesive activist network and planning actions on a local level.

We are thrilled to announce that Croatan Earth First! will be hosting next summer’s rendezvous in central North Carolina.  The exact location to be announced close to the week of the event. The spot we are choosing should have swimming holes and beautiful woods to hike in.  As for new content, we’ll be offering more earth skills, plant/mushroom identification, and ecospirituality workshops to the this year’s gathering as well as medic trainings. We’re looking for folks to host workshops, and to submit ideas for workshops/panels they’d like to see.

If you have access to money please consider donating to our wepay.  If you need to contact us regarding the rendezvous, email cef@riseup.net or croatanearthfirst@gmail.com

Please see this site for more information including tentative schedule, anti-oppression statement and guidelines:  (more…)

masonFrom Croatan Earth First!

January 26th is Marie Mason’s Birthday! Come celebrate this herbal healer, musician, mother, activist and eco-sabatour extrordinaire with us at Internationalist Books on Saturday, January 26th at 7pm. We’ll be writing letters and birthday cards to Marie and other eco-prisoners, eating snacks, socializing and watching a short video about the Earth Liberation Front. Marie Mason is presently serving 22 years in prison for a series of arsons against the timber and biotech industries. After being informed on by her ex-husband she took a non-cooperating plea deal, refusing to inform on any of her codefendents. She has been, and continues to be, a very active member of the Earth First Community. Posters and literature about the Earth Liberation Front and earth liberation prisoners will be available.
