Films from LifeMosaic

 Working in close partnership with indigenous movements LifeMosaic
 focuses on producing and disseminating educational films for
 indigenous peoples and rural communities. In partnership with Tebtebba
 and AMAN, we recently produced "Fever", a 4-part climate change
 educational film based on the voices of indigenous peoples in the
 Philippines, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Indonesia. Dubbed into 6
 languages, "Fever" is designed to inform and empower indigenous
 communities across the tropics and to be a tool for grass-roots
 facilitators, helping strengthen local movements in their awareness
 raising and advocacy work on climate change and indigenous peoples
 rights.

2012 Dirty Coal Infotour

In February and March Rock the Boat will be touring the UK with the Beehive Collective’s True Cost of Coal banner to mobilise against new coal in South Lanarkshire and linking up with local struggles to strengthen our campaigns.

Coal is still a massive issue in the UK – despite some victories against opencast mines and both Scottish Coal and UK Coal being on the brink of collapse, more and more coal is burned and mined every day. This is disastrous for communities and ecosystems, but capitalism’s dependence on cheap and dirty fossil fuels means that the struggle must continue!

Activists occupy farm building at Hinkley C nuclear site

Activists are occupying a farmhouse close to Hinkley Point nuclear power station, to stop EDF Energy trashing land for a planned new nuclear power station; and are calling for more people to join them. Anti-nuclear campaigners have been joined by members of Seize the Day as the first residents of Edf-Off Cottage which is on the 400-acre site earmarked for two new mega-reactors. Following an occupation of trees last week, the campaign against Hinkley C power station being built on fragile coastal land has now moved to a nearby farmhouse.
