2013kaivoskapina-netti-200Also this summer there are many places to camp in an active way. And with the diverse themes there is something for every’s choice. And yes, you can go on a cycling holiday as well.

Resistance to the Nordic Mining Boom ( Action Camp)
Starting 18 June 2013. in Finnish North Karelia
Talvivaaras’ nickel-uranium mine has caused the most serious environmental damages in the finnish history in decades. The mine has been continuously polluting the amazing waterscapes of eastern Finland. More and more people and organizations are demanding closing of the mine and the locals can’t use water from several lakes anymore, but it doesn’t seem to have any impact in a country where the finance elite knows that the government is in their service. Determined resistance is needed to keep the environment viable. Join us to share knowledge and skills, and to act!
