Check Out the 1st Urban Winter Action Camp!
Beginning Jan. 7, 2013, RAMPS (Radical Action for Mountain Peoples’ Survival) and MORE (Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment) will be hosting the Winter Action Camp in St. Louis!
This MORE-RAMPS collaboration is yet another part of the growing national uprising against economic and resource extraction. St. Louis is corporate headquarters to five coal corporations including Peabody, Arch and Patriot, as well as industrial agri-giant Monsanto. Participants will learn new skills and use them to engage in the current campaign against these corporations through direct action and community organizing.
We can’t wait to have you join us, learn new skills, build the movement and bring these skills back to your hometowns.
This intensive training camp will feature both a 2-week (ending January 20th) and an extended 3-week program (ending January 27th). The camp will involve two main tracks: direct action and community organizing (with overlap between the two). Within the tracks, there will be other focus areas such as climbing, action media, corporate research and legal support. The skills sets learned will be applied to community organizing projects and an action (or actions) targeting extractive industries during the camp.
Participating in this camp is a full-time commitment for either 2 or 3 weeks. We expect individuals to come wanting to work hard and stay the entire time. There will be a sliding-scale fee to cover housing and food, but we will not turn anyone away for lack of funds. All must be comfortable in a communal living environment of 40+ people. We will not tolerate harassment of any kind. There is limited space so apply early!
