HacktionLab 2009

The idea for the hacktionlab has come from a number of years of experience gained by activists working for organisations such as Indymedia and includes specific experience from involvement in the Horizone Eco-Village in Stirling (2005), the Camps for Climate Action in Drax (2006), Heathrow (2007) and Kingsnorth (2008) as well as the No Borders camp at Gatwick (2007). We have had two successful gatherings so far, a rural hack meeting in the Wye Valley in June 2008 and an urban one in Leeds in October 2008. Our next rural meeting is scheduled for June 2009:

The last rural HacktionLab took place between 13 - 15 June 2008. There’s a slide-show of photos from the weekend. There are more photos posted here and this exciting short video too.
