United StatesShalefield Justice Spring Break (SJSB), inspired by the Mountain Justice Spring Break (MJSB) and Summer camps hosted in the coalfields of Appalachia (more info: http://mjsb.org/ ), will bring together residents of extraction communities, college students, environmentalists and concerned citizens who are interested in learning more about shale gas hydraulic fracturing and its infrastructure, as well as other forms of extreme energy extraction. Participants will also learn about the history of resistance, and about plugging into and collaborating with current campaigns and projects. Through 7 days of workshops, skillshares, community service, speakers, hiking, music, films, direct action and more, folks will learn from and stand with shalefield communities in the struggle to maintain community determination and healthy environments for all species (not just humans!)
This event will be hosted in northeastern Pennsylvania. Our date will be March 16th-23rd, to coincide with the spring breaks of colleges in the area. We are coordinating dates to not overlap with the MJSB camps in West Virginia and Virginia.
We stand with folks from the frontlines in Pennsylvania, as well as with frontline communities in the Marcellus Shale, around the country and the world.
