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.
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.

Today was a day of climate change actions, an alternative summit to the official g8, and a demonstration in Solidarity with Rossport Camp, also a Naked Action and a press conference by the Rebel Clown Army, with a surprise for a visiting National State Television team.
This 7th podcast reports from the second day of the blockades around Heiligendamm. There are more then 10.000 protesters blocking the roads and occupying the fences in all sorts of creative ways. Today was also the last day of the Alternative G8 summit where a Flashradio reporter have been interviewing an enviromental activist speaker from India on her views to alternative politics. Finally the report sums up some facts from the past days repression battle between police and protesters.
Our 6th podcast is about events in todays blockades and the surrounding repression. We have details from the legal teams press conference.
In our fourth podcast we present an overview of Migration Action Day in the wider area of Rostock. A series of interviews offer an account of today’s events, amongst others the Sonnenblumen House demonstration, commemorating the 1992 attack on the refugee house and an interview from the Detention centre demo. On several occasions today police prevented hundreds of demonstrators from arriving at the area of Rostock.
In our second podcast we cover upcoming events and background information on the G8, the opposition to it and the alternative summit. The Flash Radio repression forecast informs on the current political climate.
This is our first podcast in the gear up for the G8 in June. The Indymedia workshop covered what, where, why, how’s, of Indymedia and brought up some interesting comments regarding citizen reporting and activism.
We’ve sliced the thing down to less than 10 minutes so give it a listen and leave your comments below if you feel like it.
