1. Dale Farm activity day
Saturday August 6th (3 weeks until Camp Constant) There will be activity day at Dale Farm, every Saturday until the opening of Camp Constant (Saturday, 27th August). It's a great way to get a sense of Dale Farm and help in a practical way. In addition to the 11 am start, there will be a 1 pm briefing for late arrivals.
This Saturday, we've got loads to do in terms of setting up Camp Constant. Everything from putting in the compost loos, to site defence building.
Bring a lunch, and any of the following if you can source it: spare wood, a van to pick up straw bales, spare guy ropes, plumbing skills and tools, heras fencing clips and bolts, paint. Email email@example.com for more info.
For more information, and to check the dates of activity days, keep up to date at here: http://dalefarm.wordpress.?com/activity

2. Callout for Workshops and Skillsharers
On the long weekend of August 27th before the eviction notice expires, we'll finally launch Camp Constant. Residents of Dale Farm have invited supporters down for a long weekend of skill sharing and celebration.
We still have workshop space available, and are looking for anything from Civil Disobedience training, to Traveller history. If you have some skills you'd like to contribute, or would like to suggest someone who can put on a workshop, please email email@example.com with the details.
3. Help Organise with us!
As we get closer to the expiration of the notice of eviction (August 31st) we will need more help with our organising efforts. If you'd like to support Dale Farm with your skills, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and let us know what sort of things you'd like to help with, and what gaps you think you can fill. We need everything from practical site skills, to media work, to networking skills, to people with large vehicles and the ability to dig tunnels!
