Since 2011, camps and other RTF gatherings have helped support local communities in struggle, share skills, developed networks, and strengthened the resistance to exploitation, in Bristol, west London, Gloucestershire, Nottingham and Fife among other locations.

People share stories and ideas about resistance and reclaiming our food system beyond national borders. This year, an international gathering will be held in the Wrexham, UK.
