XR Tower Hamlets Non Violent Direct Action (NVDA) Training


21 September 2019
10:45 - 15:00


St Hilda's East Community Centre, London, United Kingdom


Training - In Person

hosted by

Extinction Rebellion Tower Hamlets

In this NVDA training, you will find out how to peacefully take part in Extinction Rebellion actions.

Location is Room S6 (Second Floor), St Hilda’s Community Centre, Club Row E2 7EY.

Extinction Rebellion is a peaceful movement addressing the climate crisis through non-violent direct action (NVDA).

This free training will cover the practice of non-violent techniques: showing you how to de-escalate tense situations, how to interact with the police, what to do if you get arrested and much more.

We will also help you create affinity groups: groups of 8-12 people who work together to support each other on the day of the action. The training takes 3 hours, so please eat beforehand and bring refreshments. Feel free to bring snacks to share.

Life as we know it is falling apart. Extreme weather events and mass species extinction cover the globe. The government has failed to implement radical change and environmental organisations have failed to take sufficient action. It’s time to rebel. Join the Extinction Rebellion for our introduction to non-violent direct action, both theory and practice. In this workshop you will learn about the UK legal system, how to chat to police/public during actions, aspects of burnout and regenerative culture, and quick decision-making, as well as going through action essentials and practice of non-violent techniques.

Entry is free, but please bring along a donation, if you can, for venue hire costs. ”Tell the truth and act as if the truth is real”
