Interesting green events in London and Cape Town

Swish, swish, swish.  It’s all the rage.  Eco-fashionistas, this is for you.

There are two swishing events happening in the next little while, one in London (UK) and one in Cape Town (RSA).  See their details below.

Incase you can’t read the fine print, here’s a close-up:

For the Cape Town (Northern suburbs) event, check out the Fashion Exchange website or their Facebook page for more info.  Take note that you will need a ticket for the Cape Town event.  Here are the basics:

And for the activist at a loose end next weekend, why not join in with a mass action called by London Rising Tide, London Tar Sands Network and Climate Camp London.

Party at the Pumps Part 2 is taking place just three days before Shell’s AGM, where the company will come under fire from shareholders over its plans in the Canadian tar sands; and a week before the Merthyr to Mayo solidarity bike ride, which will link two communities in Wales and Ireland resisting fossil fuel extraction.

When: Saturday, 15th May
Meet: 1PM at Oxford Circus
Bring: a zone 1-2 tube pass, noisemakers, your friends & family and your
dancing shoes

Shutting down a petrol station for 5 hours on a sunny Saturday afternoon
was so much fun we’re going to do it again. Shell’s Hell – in the tar
sands and beyond – is next in the firing line.

Party 1 had Samba, twin sound systems, a live Ceilidh band, face-painting,
free cakes and 200 people. Party 2 will be bigger and better, with
activists joining us from Brighton, Oxford and beyond.

And while there aren’t any protest parties going on in Cape Town on that day, there is this community market, which is well worth supporting:
