Code Rood is already happening in two months! On the 24th of August the Code Rood camp will begin in Groningen. Past Saturday was the first action training session for the mass action of the 28th of August. It was an inspiring day with an enthusiastic group op people. Watch the report by OOG here. This will be the biggest civil disobedience action for Groningen and the Climate, in the Netherlands!
1. ACTION CONFERENCE 30 JUNE & 1 JULY
The next action conference is coming up soon. This is an important moment as this willth of June and the 1st of July. On Saturday there will be a discussion about the action consensus and on Sunday there will be time for the working groups to meet up. This will also be a moment where you can decide to join one of the working groups. There will also be an open space where there will (among other things) be a discussion on how we will organize the sit blockade. We can take care of accommodation for Saturday night. If you aren’t able to join for the entire weekend then you can also decide to come for only one of the two days.
So sign up for the action conference on the 31st of June and the 1st of July!
2. ACTION TRAININGS
The first action training session was a success! And the next one is already planned! Civil disobedience is not something you participate in on your average Sunday morning. That is why it is a good idea to participate in one of the action training sessions. People with experience are also more than welcome to participate as you can share your experiences, extend your network and refresh your good old sit blockade skills. Together we can prepare for a safe and efficient action in August!
Sign up now for the action training in Delfzijl on 7 July or in Amsterdam on 8 July!

Your financial support is desperately needed to finance the action conferences, the climate camp en the action! In total we are expecting to need up to €29.700 for flyers, posters, action material, conferences, training sessions and the infrastructure to organise a huge climate camp – everything we can do to get Shell, Exxon and the NAM on their knees!
