There won’t be a flash radio crew at this year’s Climate Camp at Kingsnorth. No need! because there is the magnificent Climate Camp radio and we will support them as good as we can.
Climate Camp Radio will be broadcasting from the Camp For Climate Action from the 3rd to the 10th of August 2008. Alongside camp announcements, the shows will cover happenings on and off the camp, and discuss relevant issues, We welcome people who want to ‘Be the Media’ by helping with production or providing audio; swing by the media tent if you would like to get involved. One of the camp’s core aims is education and we aim provide this through participation, creating content, and our skills share workshop.
The show will be streamed to the internet and made available on the Climate Camp website as well as other alternative media sources. It will also be archived and available for download or podcast as well, so there’s no excuse for missing it. Without doubt the coolest shit on site, so listen online or bring a radio to the camp and tune in every meal time.

We were at the Climate Camp from August 14-21 at Heathrow in 2007.
There were 8 days of inspiring workshops, information and skill-sharing, debates and a real example of a functioning low impact living village for just over 1,000 people at its largest capacity.
Residents set up their tents in neighbourhoods which also automatically meant they were part of that community and were able to attend neighbourhood meetings which were held everyday to organise the camp and the direct actions were could do as a neighbourhood.
In this podcast we focus in on one direct action which took place at the BAA offices at Bath Road in Heathrow. We were there for 24 hours. We interviewed several people some of whom who were penned in at other actions and this podcast gives a flavour of how the day went on Sunday 19th August 2007, the Day of Action.
I set up for the climate camp on friday night with a friend. While waiting for the train to Hayes and Harlington at Paddington station I saw a familiar face, a girl with dread locks and camping gear. we smiled and said hello to each other. she was taking the Oxford train that was leaving earlier, we followed her.
We’re currently discussing what the best way of operation is for us, but there is no doubt that Flash radio Podcasts will keep coming. Check “Become Flashradio” in the top menu for details.
The next dates in the Flashradio calendar are a series of workshops and discussions while producing two podcasts during the Big Green Gathering. Come and check us out at the Alternative Media Tent.
