Waar: to be determined, Parijs, Netherlands

Come join us in Paris on the weekend of 9-11 October to help build on the contagious enthusiasm unleashed over the summer to create the largest ever day of disobedient action for climate justice and against capitalism during the COP21 UN Climate Summit in Paris in December.

This summer has seen a re(in)surgence of anti-capitalist movements with camps and actions all across Europe, from the defiant Greek Oxi! to the solidarity shown to refugees desperately fleeing European and US-caused devastation to the collective euphoria of 1000 people flowing through police lines to shut down the vast lignite coal mines in the Rhineland—the largest source of CO2 emissions in Europe. The roaring cadence of "Ende Gelände!” (“Here and No Further!”) rang out unmistakably across the continent, gathering together the ties and disobedient seeds sown at the 7 other camps this summer, including the 800-person strong anti-nuclear camp in Bure—France’s first large-scale summer camp since 2011. And this is just the beginning as we fight to ensure our collective future on a liveable planet.

Come join us in Paris on the weekend of 9-11 October to help build on this contagious enthusiasm unleashed over the summer to create the largest ever day of disobedient action for climate justice and against capitalism during the COP21 UN Climate Summit in Paris in December. We’ll discuss plans for actions to show our collective force; where we can stay in Paris; how we can support the mobilisations of the ZADs and other struggles that’ll converge on Paris for COP21; and how we can use this moment in December to continue to build, nourish and create connections for a culture of resistance within our movements and local struggles, so we can propel ourselves beyond the COP. Global days of action against major fossil fuel infrastructure and the root causes of the climate crisis are already on the horizon at the end of April 2016.We know COP21 will deliver a death sentence for the poor and the planet and a blessing for corporations. While the world is watching, let’s make sure our resistance is not relegated to a mere footnote but becomes history itself. We refuse to let governments triumphantly sell the Paris deal as the ultimate false solution that will destroy the planet. We will not stand idly by.

The meeting will take place in Paris (location to be determined). Housing/crash space and food (vegan) will be provided (free, donations accepted). We have limited funding to cover travel costs, so please let us know if you need assistance or if you have any other questions—write to


Don’t miss this opportunity to join us in Paris on the 9-11 October for the Climate Justice Action meeting and meet some of the others who’ll be running around the streets of Paris (and elsewhere) at the end of the year.

On Friday, the meeting will begin at 6pm —the location is still being determined and we will let you know very soon.

On Saturday and Sunday the meeting will be held at 5 avenue Louis Pasteur, 92220 Bagneux (take RER B in the direction of Robinson/St Remy to Bagneux stop, then 10 minute walk). We plan to start at 10am and end at 4pm on Sunday.

Here’s the outline of the agenda. There will be a bit of time on Friday evening to make your voice heard and adapt the agenda accordingly.

We’ve planned to see who is around, what they’re up to and their existing plans. Some topics and initiatives up for discussion will include:

- Action proposals during the COP21 (False Solutions, Climate Games, etc…)
- D12 (December 12) action plans – existing ideas and new ones
- Convergence from the ZADs and other struggles arriving on 28 Nov and 29 Nov
- Logistics – spaces, kitchens etc
- Mobilising plans/info-tours (for actions during COP21)
- Other things being planned
- Beyond the COP

We are planning for various discussions to run in parallel so that if some folks want to discuss one particular initiative during most of the weekend, they will be able to do so. That also means that we expect only a fairly short/limited amount of time in large assemblies.

All this with some great vegan food (donations welcome) and even a few drinks if you want!

There will be places to sleep in very basic accommodation, so please bring a sleeping bag, mat, and warm clothes.

If anyone has accessibility needs then please email

To remind yourself of the decisions already taken by CJA about the way that we organise please check:

If you can't afford the transport costs, and no one else from your country can attend the meeting, we have a small budget that could be used to subsidise transport in certain circumstances. Email for more info.

See you soon!
