Day of Direct Action
At this year's Camp for Climate Action we plan on taking action against RBS HQ and the fossil fuel industry. This is a callout for individuals to get organised before the camp.
Forming your affinity group:
Get together with your mates, or make new friends
Figure out your limits, aims, boundaries and strategies that work for you.
Assess the amount of risk and style of action you feel most empowered to take.
Consider the different roles needed what kit to get and how you want to organise as a group. As a team you should support and empower each other to be as self efficient and strategic as possible.
Not already in a group? Want to meet some people to take action with? At the camp, Action Support will be there running workshops to help you form new affinity groups and strengthen already existent groups. We are also providing a safe space for individuals and affinity groups in the need of advice, resources, information and support.

It’s also the time to start thinking about the legal implications of your actions and how you plan to support each other pre and post- action.
Things to consider:
First off, if you’re not from Scotland, don’t forget the law is different here. Secondly, even if you are not arrested then think about whether or not you could be identified later.
Remember; try taking precautions beforehand so you don’t get caught before you do what you’re planning on doing!

There is no secret plan of action – any action will come from affinity groups. If we don’t do it, who will? If not now, when?
Come along to the Camp for Climate Action and take action!
