Something for the Weekend 28 September 2012 #Manchester #Climate

We at MCFly are good friends with 25 letters of the alphabet. We don’t know why.

And this weekend:

Sat 29th, 10.45pm Northern Activism summit (Oxfam),

This from Oxfam –

“We have great stuff ready for you and managed to arrange interesting and exciting speakers from local food-related organisations including the Kindling trust and climate friendly food.

A quick reminder – we will start at 11.00 so if you can arrive at 10.45 that would be great – you can have some tea, coffee and biscuits before we get started at 11.00.

The event is taking place at the Greenfish Centre, on Oldham street,which is just ten minutes away from Manchester Piccadilly train station. (We have attached some directions for you here.)

When you arrive you need to buzz the Oxfam office. If no one is responding (we will, though) you can give us a ring on 07775 410536.

Sunday 30th, 12pm until 10pm one day ‘wonder(ment)’ At Alexandra Park one day ‘wonder(ment)’ invites you to come enjoy a day of wonder and intrigue amongst the trees with tea rooms, bicycle powered cinema, speakers corner and art for big and little peoples…

Sunday 30th, 4-6pm  Tell Labour to… Say No to Fracking!

  • Join activists from Ribble Estuary Against Fracking, Residents Action on Fylde Fracking and Friends of the Earth to Say No to Fracking!
  • Meet at 4pm at the corner of Windmill Street and Mount Street, between Midland Hotel and Manchester Central conference centre.
  • We’ll be flyering, with banners, taking to delegates and asking Labour Cllrs and MPs to join a photo of support with us.
  • Contact: Helen 07940 006783

Please contact your Labour Cllrs or MPs and ask them to join a photo of support against fracking and for green jobs and renewable energy at 5pm outside the main conference entrance on Windmill Street. Thank-you!

If you know of other weekend events that are about “climate” (and that includes food growing, or cycling or whatever), then let us know and we can include them in future “Something for the Weekend”s…

And if you know any jokes of the high standard we’ve used so far, please submit ’em.
