Non-violent direct action (NVDA) training for anyone planning to participate in mass civil disobedience with Extinction Rebellion.

Hosted by Southwark XR, open to everyone.

Attendance is free but you must register via Eventbrite here >>> https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/non-violent-direct-action-training-southwark-xr-tickets-70492953321 <<< Extinction Rebellion is a peaceful international movement addressing the climate crisis through mass non violent direct action (NVDA) to achieve structural change in an attempt to reduce the likelihood of human extinction and ecological collapse. In this NVDA training you will find out how to take part in Extinction Rebellion actions. 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. At the end, if you want, we will help you to form an affinity group: groups of 8-12 people who work together to support each other on the day of the action. The training takes approx 3 1/2 hours so please bring food / feel free to bring vegan snacks to share. **Venue confirmed as ROOM 416, OXO TOWER** Entrance is on the riverside between Cafe Nero and the Gift Shop. Look for a grey bollard which says Redwood Housing Coop on it. Press the bell for 416. There will be an XR member waiting downstairs to help signpost!

The next International Rebellion begins on October 7th in capital cities across the world. We need everyone to participate, so please encourage your friends, family, neighbours and colleagues to come along to NVDA training in the build up. This is quite possibly our last chance to come together and attempt to avert runaway climate catastrophe.
