Two training dates have been arranged:
Know Your Rights & Community Action Training, Sunday 22 February, 11.00 am – 6.00 pm
The Know Your Rights workshop provides the knowledge and skills to deal with police, know what to do if you or someone else gets arrested and understand common protest offences, as well as civil actions which target protest, such as injunctions and possession orders.
Organised resident’s groups have proven to be the most single most effective method for opposing injustice and extreme energy development around the world.
There comes a time in most campaigns when simply informing people abput an issue or threat is not enough and action is needed to empower a community to defend itself. Community action training provides skills and techniques a group can use to plan and take direct action in a safe and effective manner , from road blockades to site occupations. This workshop can help build the confidence needed to take back control of your future.
