From Croatan Earth First!
On Friday August 16th Internationalist Books in Chapel Hill will host a debate/discussion at 6 p.m. regarding the new zine “The Issues Are Not The Issue” with the author (former EF!er) and organizers from Everglades & Katuah Earth First!
On Saturday Aug 17th, come out from 2-5 p.m. at Internationalist Bookstore at 405 W. Franklin St. in Chapel Hill for the “Earth Nightly News” program and Independent Media Workshop with editors from the Earth First! Journal Collective out of Lake Worth, Florida and the Appalachian office in Western NC. Find out how you can get involved in EF! Media projects and more. Participants will discuss where they get their news, which forms are most used, and how under-reported events and organizing can get more attentions through alternative press.
The Earth First! Journal has been a circulating printed newspaper and magazine for over 32 years. As the voice of the international direct action movement, the EF! Journal Collective maintains a number of media projects to help communicate the actions and ecological news to the world.

The Round River Rendezvous is the annual gathering of the Earth First! Movement. Each Summer, this week-long camp-out attracts several hundred Earth First!ers from around the world. The gathering is coordinated by a volunteer committee and includes workshops, campaign discussions, campfire music and a rally with performers and speakers. Perhaps the most important part of the Round River Rendezvous is the informal networking that goes on. These gatherings are particularly important for developing a cohesive activist network and planning actions on a local level.
We are thrilled to announce that Croatan Earth First! will be hosting next summer’s rendezvous in central North Carolina. The exact location to be announced close to the week of the event. The spot we are choosing should have swimming holes and beautiful woods to hike in. As for new content, we’ll be offering more earth skills, plant/mushroom identification, and ecospirituality workshops to the this year’s gathering as well as medic trainings. We’re looking for folks to host workshops, and to submit ideas for workshops/panels they’d like to see.
If you have access to money please consider donating to our wepay. If you need to contact us regarding the rendezvous, email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
