SEAN weekend report-back (Sept 09)

So, this last weekend saw the second SEAN weekend of 2009 bring together a bunch of SEAN folk from different collectives to camp at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy on Dharawal land in Wollongong. We set up on Friday and spent the weekend cooking deliciousness on a fire, going for chilly swims at the beach and watching a pretty brilliant moonrise over the ocean. Oh and we also chatted and did some workshops and had a SEAN meeting over breakfast and stuff.

On Friday we heard from Uncle Dootch about the campaign to save the land and indigenous burial site from Stockland- developer of ugly beachfront houses. On Saturday we did a Non-Violent Direct Action workshop, talked about affinity groups and a potential SEAN neighbourhood for Climate Camp 09 and in the afternoon heard from Caroline of Rivers SOS on local coal happenings and government/industry dodginess (see photo). On Sunday we chilled out a bit, had a deep ecology workshop and a SEAN meeting with our breakfast tea.

What is Climate Camp?

Climate Camp is a place for anyone who is looking to learn about the issues and ways we can create change; for anyone who wants to take action on climate change; for anyone who’s fed up with empty government rhetoric and corporate spin; and for anyone who wants to help build a climate justice movement across the nation.

The NSW Climate Camp, Oct 9th – 11th 2009, will be on Dharawal Land in Helensburgh. www.climatecamp.org.au
