Another End of the World is Possible is a series of captivating video portraits of people taking radical action against the root causes of climate change. Ranging from an activist who occupied an airport's taxi way, to a teacher working with kids on a deprived housing estate, the portraits demonstrate the wonderful diversity of those taking part in this years Camp for Climate Action in the UK : 14th --21st August.

    
Promoting agrofuels and carbon trade is fundamentally incompatible with the goal of protecting forests and indigenous people’s rights. These are false solutions to climate change.

The Camp For Climate Action 2007 has announced that it will be taking place at Heathrow Airport from August 14-21.

Last summer, over 600 people converged outside Drax coal-fired power station for 10 days of sustainable living and collective education, culminating in a day of mass action against Drax. This year, the Camp for Climate Action will pitch its tents near Heathrow airport.

There will be a day of mass direct action aiming to disrupt the activities of the airport and the aviation industry, but in the interests of public safety there will be no attempt to blockade runways.

Kevin Smith from Carbon Trade Watch was one of 7 people taking different action on climate change interviewed in the run up to the camp.
