Reclaim the Power is a UK based direct action network fighting for social, environmental and economic justice. We aim to build a broad based movement, working in solidarity with frontline communities to effectively confront environmentally destructive industries and the social and economic forces driving climate change.
In a deepening climate crisis, now is the time to join us so we can end fossil fuel extraction all over and bring our demands for a community owned renewables to the fore. It doesn’t matter whether you are an old or new face to Reclaim the Power, or whether this is the first time you’ve dabbled in activism. This is a pivotal time to get stuck in!
At our National Gatherings we use consensus decision making to develop strategies and make plans to take direct action in the name of climate justice. Gatherings are also a space to get empowered, meet new faces and learn from one another.
We are working on the agenda now but a sneak peak includes: making exciting decisions about our summer mobilisation against new gas infrastructure; skill-sharing; working group time on Supply & Demand (our national call out for decentralised actions against the fracking and new gas supply chains on Feb 22nd and 23rd) and; making solidarity banners ahead of the sentencing of the Stansted 15 in February.
Saturday 26th January: 11am to 6pm
Sunday 27th January: 11am to 5pm
Where? The Printworks, 139 Clapham Rd, London, SW9 0HP
