In this NVDA training, you will find out how to peacefully take part in Extinction Rebellion actions.
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.
”Tell the truth and act as if the truth is real”
