Last week one of Britain’s highest-profile and most politically significant squats was given its latest stay of execution. Residents at Grow Heathrow, a squat set up on derelict land in protest at plans for a third runway, were granted the right to appeal against a ruling by the royal courts of justice giving them 14 days to leave. The case has been rumbling on since the land was occupied in 2010; despite many eviction attempts, the squatters look set to fight another day.

‘A civilization on Mars thousands of years ago’: Congressman stuns NASA scientists
A California congressman baffled a panel of space experts testifying in Washington when he asked if it was possible that Mars was home to an ancient alien civilization. The panel told him that there was “no evidence” and it would be “extremely unlikely.” 
hearing before the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology on Tuesday was interrupted when Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-California) requested additional time to ask the panel of scientists with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) if there was any evidence of archaic extraterrestrials living on the red planet.
"You have indicated that Mars was totally different thousands of years ago,” said Rohrabacher, who is the vice chairman of the Science, Space and Technology Committee and a member of the Space and Aeronautics Subcommittee since he first entered Congress in 1989.
“Is it possible that there was a civilization on Mars thousands of years ago?” he asked.

A growing number of women in Iran are refusing to wear a hijab while driving, sparking a nationwide debate about whether a car is a private space where they can dress more freely.
Obligatory wearing of the hijab has been an integral policy of the Islamic republic since the 1979 revolution but it is one the establishment has had a great deal of difficulty enforcing. Many Iranian women are already pushing the boundaries, and observers in Tehran say women who drive with their headscarves resting on their shoulders are becoming a familiar sight.

Apioneering project to produce power from hot rocks several kilometres under the ground in Cornwall will begin drilling early next year, if a multimillion-pound fundraising drive succeeds.
Abundance, a crowdfunding platform overseen by the main City regulator, will this week launch a bond to raise £5m for the UK’s first commercial geothermal power station, located near Redruth.
Iceland is the world leader in geothermal power, where deep holes are drilled to reach hot rocks, water is pumped down, heated and returned to the surface to generate electricity or provide heating.

What is Campaign Bootcamp?

Campaign Bootcamp

Campaign Bootcamp


Applications now open!

You can now apply for Bootcamp 11 - our last Bootcamp of 2017,  just head over to the Apply page to find out more. 

Bootcamp 11 will take place from Monday 16th October to Saturday 21st October 2017. The deadline to apply is 9am Tuesday 22nd August (UK).
Bootcamp is designed to give you the skills, community and confidence you need to run the campaigns you want.  
Bootcamp is a hands on learning environment. Packed full of workshops, great speakers, discussion groups and real life scenarios you'll learn what it takes to run thoughtful campaigns and find your place in the movement.
We value everyone. We don't believe in cookie cutter campaigners. We place an emphasis on learning to work together, being supportive and good to each other and embodying the values we're fighting for. We actively encourage and will provide support to people underrepresented or undervalued in the world of activism; that means working class people, people of colour, women, gender variant folk, LGBTQ people, disabled people, refugees and migrants, survivors, parents and carers. One of the ways we do this is through our scholarships.
Bootcamp is fun! We've all been on boring trainings -- so we've designed Bootcamp to be an energetic learning environment. Here's a quick video explaining it more detail:
