Event description

Description

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

In this NVDA training you will find out how to take part in Extinction Rebellion actions, including the Autumn International Rebellion starting on 7th October.

The 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. It will empower you to protest, giving you confidence and mutual support. You will meet like-minded people.

We will also help you create affinity groups: groups of 8-12 people who work together to support each other on a day of the action.

The training takes 5 hours, so bring lunch. Asda is opposite. Tea, biscuits and coffee available. There is parking nearby, opp. St Mary's Church. Hitchin station is 10 mins walk away. 16yrs +.welcome.
