Non-violent direct action or peaceful civil disobedience has a long history of success in achieving large change, from the Indian Independence Movement to the Civil Rights Movement. At this half-day workshop, you'll become empowered with these skills, so you can join Extinction Rebellion in taking climate action now. If you stick around after the workshop, we have a fun mini-action for anyone that wants to try on their brand new skills. The training covers the principles of non-violent direct action, why it works, the definition of non-violence, a legal rights briefing, and role-plays to get you ready for common peaceful civil disobedience scenarios. Please do not attend without registering as we may not be able to accommodate you in accordance with health & safety guidelines limiting the number of attendees.
