This MORE-RAMPS – BMIS collaboration is yet another part of the
growing national uprising against economic and resource extraction. St.
Louis is corporate headquarters to five coal corporations including
Peabody, Arch and Patriot, as well as industrial agri-giant Monsanto.
Participants will learn new skills and use them to engage in the current
campaign against these corporations through direct action and community
We can’t wait to have you join us, learn new skills, and build the movement! Apply here today, space is limited!
The camp will feature a 2-week (Jan 7-20) and 3-week (Jan 7-27)
option. There will be two featured tracks: direct action and community
organizing, with significant overlap and emphasis put on how these
fundamental aspects of resistance fit together. Both tracks will
include multiple actions targeting extractive industries and provide a
solid set of skills that can be used in any campaign. Both tracks are a
full time commitment and will include intensive training and hands on
Participating in this camp is a full-time commitment for either 2 or 3
weeks. We expect individuals to come wanting to work hard and stay the
entire time. There will be a sliding-scale fee to cover housing and
food, but we will not turn anyone away for lack of funds. All must be
comfortable in a communal living environment of 40+ people. We will not
tolerate harassment of any kind. There is limited space so apply early!
Here’s a rideshare board!
