Nonviolent Direct Action Training – XR Oxford & Henley

20th August 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Come along to our online Non-Violent Direct Action (NVDA) workshop, hosted on Zoom, which 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.

You will learn about the history of Civil Disobedience, theories of Non-Violence, and various NVDA skills such as how to talk to the police, how to block a road, and how to use your support systems.

This workshop takes 3 hours, and includes 2 x 15 minute breaks – please arrive on time! There will be lots of information to learn, and chances to engage interactively with this information – it’s a good idea to bring a pen and paper. No prior knowledge is needed, we are all crew and we are all learning from each other.
