Non Violent Direct Action Training

This is your chance to join this growing diverse and peaceful movement of people united to demand action on climate change.Trainers will provide a briefing about Extinction Rebellion and the 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.XR's 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. XR activities may focus on outreach, visioning or disruptive action.Training will cover how to de-escalate tense situations, how to interact with Police, roles in XR, how to take action, what to do if you get arrested and much more.

It will cover action essentials, the practice of nonviolent techniques, and how to create affinity groups.   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.Registration 11:15, prompt start 11:30. Teas and coffees will be available, please bring a pack lunch. If you have any questions please contact Extinction Rebellion Peterborough via facebook
