Event description

Description

Extinction Rebellion Birmingham

Non-violent Direct Action Training

This training event is to skill people up to take non-violent direct action in preparation for future actions organised by Extinction Rebellion in Birmingham or Nationally. In particular this is training is preparation for people looking to attend the upcoming events and next International uprising in October.

At the training we will cover:

  • Why NVDA?
  • A Brief history on Non Violence
  • An Arrest Process and what to expect
  • Your rights and legal implications
  • Affinity groups and roles during protests
  • Overview of De-escalation and Legal Observers
  • Rapid decision making in protest situations

This event is free to attend.

Please book via Eventbrite to ensure a place.

Maximum number of places: 30

* An important note is that in no way is this training you, or encouraging you to be arrestable. It is so everyone is fully aware of what situations may occor to you or to rebels around you at an action, and understand any such implcations that could take place. Importantly it is about you becoming aware of how may want to, or not want to partipate in actions and in no way encourages you to do what you may feel uncomfortable with. Every action is a personal decision.
