MCFly is relaunching its Monday morning blog posts about;
a) what you can do/how you can get involved in stuff
b) events that are coming up in Manchester [If you have some, it doesn’t have to be just climate, anything environmental will do] and
c) things worth reading – if you have stuff you want included, let me know.
Stuff you can do
a) Film-making: We are going to start making films where we interview a lot of people and then stitch together the “best” answers.
We need people to be interviewed (the first set of questions is around how to get new people involved in groups and keep them involved, how to sustain morale etc.)
We need people to do “rough transcriptions” of the raw footage so that editing is an easier job. We would sent you an audio file (mp3) for you to type up. As long or as short as you liked. Interested? Get in touch!
Wed 22nd, 6.15pm AfSL Green Seeds Finale Celebration, Whalley Range
AfSL will be hosting the final celebration event for the Green Seeds project.
The Carlton Club will provide the space (and bar), along with locally sourced seasonal snacks and entertainment from spoken word artists and musicians. There will be a couple of special guests to help us tell the Green Seeds story and celebrate the great work the project has allowed AfSL to do over the past four years.
The event will kick off at 6:15pm with AfSL’s AGM (open to all), followed at 7pm by a chance to browse interactive, crafty stalls. To finish the evening off there’ll be live music and more chatting.
Carlton Club, Rowan Lodge, 113 Carlton Road, Whalley Range, Manchester. M16 8BE
Thurs 23rd, 7pm: Manchester Friends of the Earth climate campaign meeting
Our monthly climate campaign meeting at which we’ll be planning next steps on our campaigns on fracking and greening rented homes. If you’d like to join us, please text Ali on 07786 090520 so we know to expect you.
Green Fish Resource Centre, 46-50 Oldham St, Manchester M4 1LE
Sun 26th Solidarity Day for the anti-fracking campaign and the Barton Moss Protection Camp. The meeting time is provisionally 1pm, final details will be sent out later. We are expecting coaches from around the country, specially from other areas threatened with fracking. The no. 67 bus runs past the end of Barton Moss Rd (M30 7RL) car sharing is another good option.
Reading and watching
Lots of it, none comes to mind though. Suggestions?
