A day of facilitated discussions open to people living in the South East, who care about fracking and climate change AND WANT TO ORGANISE TO DO SOMETHING.

Hosted by a group of people from Sussex who came together and were inspired at Reclaim the Power in Blackpool.

They wish to empower people from Hampshire, Sussex Surrey and Kent to actively and effectively organise in response to climate change through outreach, education, sustainable living, direct action and social justice.

To this end, the aims of the day, are as follows, in no particular order:

# Build on the work of Reclaim the Power and identify how it may be helpful to anti-frackers in the South East.

# Facilitate the networking of existing local groups in the south east and encourage horizontal organising against the fracking industry

# Encourage resistance against the causes of climate change including airport expansion and biofuels as well as fracking

# Establish what training people feel they could benefit from eg direct action training, legal training, public speaking, site maintenance etc.

# Debrief from RTP and develop proposals for the next RTP meeting in Birmingham.

# Identify useful upcoming events for groups to organise around.

Tea and networking from 11.00am for a prompt start of formal chats at 11.30am.

Lunch, a vegan picnic for donations, is served at 1.00pm.

The Cowley Club, situated in Brighton has excellent public transport links. There are carparks nearby for those travelling by car.
