Earth First! Rendezvous
July 5th-12th, 2011
Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness of Idaho and Montana
Come make some Bitterroot memories in the land of breathtaking natural beauty, where you are afraid to look away. You may encounter lynx, grizzly, wolf or cougar, but probably not because they have 3.6 million acres of protected wilderness to hide from you (Frank Church, Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness). Help defend the Big Wild from the oily hands of resource extraction.
This will be an 8 day campout gathering of resistance to dirty, destructive energy extraction. Some of the areas we will focus on are: the Alberta Tar Sands & Utah Tar Sands, Black Mesa, Mountaintop Removal and Fracking.
This is an invitation for indigenous, activist and local speakers to teach us about your campaign.
We are also encouraging musicians who perform environmental and social justice music.
