The Central Wisconsin Action Camp will bring together organizers and activists from Wisconsin and the Great Lakes region to share skills and foster a culture of direct action that challenges false solutions to environmental and economic problems including upcoming regional infrastructure projects like the Penokee Hills Iron Mine, Frac-sand Mining, the CAPX2020 transmission line, the Keystone XL and Enbridge Pipelines, Factory Farming and High Capacity Wells, the Kennecott Nickel and Copper Mine, etc.
Together, we will develop our understanding of the historical context of direct action in the Midwest and the skills needed to plan & execute direct action as part of a successful strategic campaign. Your ideas are needed! No special prior experience is required to participate. There are many simple yet important ways to contribute, such as sign and banner making and legal observation and if you are feeling combative there is climbing and blockading trainings as well.
