Peace News Summer Camp

A report of the first Peace News Summer Camp

The first-ever Peace News Summer Camp was held at Westmill Farm near Watchfield in Oxfordshire from 23-27 July 2009. Over 120 people came to take part in discussions, trainings and debates on topics as varied as nonviolence (does it protect the state?), education (can education be libertarian?), and the fate of the anti-war movement (who’s more to blame for our limitations, the Stop The War Coalition or the anti-authoritarian wing of the movement?).

Fuelled by wonderful (vegan) food from Veggies of Nottingham, we constructed or erected water pipelines and taps, compost toilets, marquees, fire pits, a bar, a mini wind turbine (visible behind it, five giant turbines across the road) and a community.
