Day gathering of speakers, videos, workshops, campaigns

Throughout the 20th century oil has beaten a bloodstained path through the lands of those unfortunate enough to possess it. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are a reminder that the rich world's ever growing appetite for energy is set to bring more death and destruction, whilst climate change, the ultimate weapon of mass destruction wreaks havoc worldwide.

But do things have to be this way? How can we break our Petro Addiction and effectively challenge the unholy trinity of oil, power and politics? What does a fossil fuel free future look like?

The morning includes presentations on: new oil frontiers; oil and Iraq; how the UK finances oil and war; climate change overview and impacts; and resistance to oil nationally and internationally.

The afternoon workshops will explore these issues further, and plan local campaigns which start to dismantle our addiction to oil and thirst for empire.

There has never been a better time to campaign on oil and war
