Event description
Join the thousands of people taking non-violent direct action to address the climate and ecological crisis

About this Event

After taking part in the International Rebellion, Extinction Rebellion Cambridge is holding a full day introduction to non-violent direct action - both theory and practice. This is your chance to join this growing diverse and peaceful movement of people united to demand action on climate change.

We will provide a briefing about Extinction Rebellion and our campaign to address the climate emergency, which began in Autumn last year with thousands of people joining together to take part in mass civil disobedience in the centre of London.

This campaign is based on PhD research on effective campaign mobilisation, and experience which so far has led Kings College University London, Cardiff University and Bristol University to agree to divest from fossil fuels.

This training will cover how to de-escalate tense situations, how to interact with police, what to do if you get arrested and much more.

We will go through action essentials and practice of nonviolent techniques, and create affinity groups for people in the Cambridge area (or outside the area as required).

Affinity groups are made up of 8-12 people who work together and support each other on the day of the action and preparing for it. Group members choose whether they take on non-arrestable or arrestable roles and both are equally important.

Please register for this event to attend.

Please arrive at 10.45 am to register for a prompt 1100 am start. Tea and coffee will be available.

If you have any questions, please contact Derek: dereklangleyxr@protonmail.com Also let him know if you would like to use the ramped entrance at the rear of the building.

Look out for the next training dates...
