Non Violent Direct Action training evenings of 21st and 22nd Jan at Derby Womens Centre

(Please note this training is for all genders!)

If you feel you may ever want to take part in a protest, this is for you! Run by XR Derby but the techniques you will learn, and the underlying philosophy, are applicable to any non-violent protests. This training is for free (thank you to the generous people who are donating their time and expertise) but donations are welcomed to help pay for the venue.

Booking essential as places are limited. Book here

Part 1 Tuesday 21 January 7pm to 9.30pm

Part 2 Wednesday 22 January 7pm to 9.30pm

Derby Womens Centre, 4 Leopold Street, Derby, DE1 2HE both evenings.

Non-violent Direct Action (NVDA) is the basis of all Extinction Rebellion protests. It is the reason we have been so successful so far. This is essential training for all members taking part in protests. Even if you have no intention of being arrested please do this so you are prepared for protests and we can maintain the discipline of peacefulness. Plenty of actions avoid arrest (but other actions may present it as a risk.) NVDA is required in both. This contains a legal briefing and updated information.

This training will support protests in London at the Summer Rebellion but it is also vital for actions locally.

Please book to ensure you get a place. We do need to know numbers. Everyone is welcome.

If you can’t make this at short notice check out this training weekend in Nottingham.

If you’ve already had this training there are a few things you can do to support future protests.
