Contact Email: hacktionlab@hacktivista.net

The aim of HacktionLab is to have a convergence where
people interested in and/or working in the areas of
alternative media, renewable energy, on-line video
distribution, free software and any other form of
activism that utilises technology.

The idea for the gathering has come from a number of
years of experience gained by activists working for
organisations such as Indymedia and includes specific
experience from involvement in the camps for climate
action in Selby (2006) and Heathrow (2007) as well as
the No Borders camp at Gatwick (2007).

as whoever is promoting this event hasn't included adequate location details, it is here; http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=Ste ... 20Redbrook.

also, the flyer url above is broken and should be http://www.clearerchannel.org/flyers/ou ... ering.html

sounds really cool, but is too far away + in the middle of no-where for me (why do activist events always seem to be situated so far away from population centres? it makes it harder for the average person to attend. i would have attempted to make the big blether otherwise. i do so not need to worry about travel logistics right now..)
