Are you worried about the climate crisis?
Do you want to be trained as a conscientious protector?
Extinction Rebellion conducts training for new and aspiring activists concerned about the lack of action on the ecological emergency, widespread extinctions, and rising global temperatures. Based on the principles of non-violent direct action (NVDA), this training will give you the skills to engage in civil resistance, a peaceful and disruptive form of direct action.
If you have been watching rebels blockading bridges in London, stopping traffic in Melbourne, occupying parliament in Adelaide, blockading the Adani site--and you are considering participation in actions like these--here is a starting point.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing.
This venue does have wheelchair access.
It's highly recommend that you watch our Heading for Extinction talk before attending this training. We are routinely presenting this talk across the state. Please check our website for upcoming presentations. Alternatively you can watch it online as presented by XR UK.
