About Anarchist Action Network

The Anarchist Action Network is an autonomous network made up of local groups and individuals from the anarchist movement based in the UK. We came together after the 2013 G8 summit to help re-build an anarchist network for the UK and take action together against capitalism and other oppressive elements in society. The network meets every three months, in a different town or city, to make decisions for the network by consensus.

We organized two ‘Anarchist Traveling Circuses’, in Newport, south Wales and East London, as well as numerous other events, demonstrations and weeks of action, and we now plan more of the same!

We’d like to welcome you (except cops and journos) to be a part of this.

Earth First! Summer Gathering – August 15th-20th

Five days of skill-sharing for grassroots ecological direct action – make links, share ideas, and get involved in the struggles against fracking, new roads and more – and one day-of-action against fracking in Sussex.

The EF! Summer Gathering is a chance for people and groups from across the country and beyond to get together to network, share practical skills, ideas and inspiration to help our actions and campaigns be as strategic and effective as possible. This is an annual gathering for grassroots ecological direct action, this year focusing on welcoming people from impacted communities.

This year the Summer Gathering will be held at a rural site (accessible by public transport). Last couple of years gatherings have been the largest and most dynamic for many years, with over 100 workshops and more than 400 people attending over the five days of skill-sharing, networking and planning. Contact for any specific accessibility needs etc: .

*GLOBAL ACTION DAY AGAINST TURKISH OCCUPATION OF AFRIN*

*Defend the Kurdish People and Human Values*

*Bring Anna Campbell back home*

The Turkish state’s invasion of Afrin and Kurdistan will be protested worldwide on Saturday May 26, for the “Global Action Day against Turkish occupation of Kurdistan”.

In London we will march on Global Action Day for Afrin in memory of Anna Campbell, who fell while defending the Kurdish people and all of humanity in Afrin.

The Global Action Day, highlights how “The Erdogan government has taken the colonial ambitions of the Turkish state to a whole new level. It now aims to destroy all the gains made by the Kurds in Rojava. If this is not achievable, then they would like to lay siege to the Kurdish territories and suffocate them”.

Erdogan is trying to create a ‘safe zone’ in Afrin for ISIS and its jihadi terrorists. His plan is to try and turn Afrin into a capital for terrorism, instead of Raqqa or Mosul. His efforts need to be opposed by all.

We all have to take action against Erdoğan’s dangerous policies in the Middle East, which not only target the Kurdish people, but all humanitarian values.

Without urgent action to stop him now, we fear that he may quickly become the next version of Hitler,and will destroy not only Kurdistan and the Middle East, but the whole world.”

Date: *Saturday 26 May*

Time: *2pm*

Place: *BBC* Portland Place

Nearest Station: *Oxford Circus*
