>> International Anti-nuclear Summer Camp & Network Gathering
>> in Middle Saxony/Germany, July 29 - August 3, 2012

You are invited to six days of workshops and presentations,
skill-sharing and networking, excursions and public events in Döbeln,
Middle Saxony. It will be a chance to meet activists and interested
people from several regions across Europe to share experiences and
ideas with each other and network for mutual projects and actions.

Everyone is welcome to offer workshops or presentations on topics they
are working with. Please feel invited to talk about your current
struggles, upcoming campaigns and actions. The gathering also aims to
share our skills together in the fields of action, campaigning,
investigating etc. It would be wonderful if you have issues you want
to bring up.

We plan to visit an abandoned uranium mine at the Czech border not too
far from the camp. There we will meet critics and learn about the
threats connected to uranium mining.

28. You can travel by train to Döbeln, by coach to Chemnitz or Leipzig
