Event Details

Free screening of award-winning documentary FINITE: The Climate of Change, followed by a discussion of direct action tactics, and a chance to get involved in Climate Camp Scotland 2023.

The Film

Rich Felgate’s FINITE: The Climate of Change is an insider’s view of the world of direct action: a raw, authentic and emotional insight into the David and Goliath battle between frontline communities, activists and fossil fuel corporations.

In
Germany, concerned citizens step forward to save an ancient forest from one of Europe’s largest coal mines. They form an unlikely alliance with
a frustrated community in rural England who are forced into action to protect their homes from a new opencast coal mine.

Discussion
Climate Camp Scotland is a grassroots collective organising for climate justice and against fossil fuels in Scotland, by running annual climate camps
that include mass direct action as a core tactic. After the screening, we will discuss our responses to the film and consider the question: ‘Does size matter? Why *mass* direct action?’

Join the Crew for Climate Camp 2023
Climate Camp 2023 will be on Wednesday 12 through to Monday 17 July, in the Grangemouth area. Targeting the INEOS refinery and petrochemical
complex, the camp will be a melting pot of action and creativity as we take on Scotland’s biggest polluter, build the movement for climate justice, support local community struggles, and forge solidarity with workers. All through putting on an entirely volunteer-run, non-hierarchical event where all of us are responsible and everyone is crew!

With the camp now a matter of weeks away, we need *you* to get stuck in. This gathering will be an opportunity to find out more about our plans for Climate Camp 2023 at Grangemouth, and to join our teams (‘working groups’) already beavering away.
