for the G8, DSEi and beyond...
A day of discussion, skill sharing and hands-on workshops with an emphasis on affinity group actions. The morning will focus on the basics of affinity group actions; the how, why, what, where and when. Find out how to form a small group and work together to take effective action. The afternoon will be an opportunity to explore specific tactics and how to get away with them. Come and share skills with others: learn to hit them where it hurts!
There may be police photographers outside the venue: please do not be intimidated. You might choose to wear a scarf in this warm weather.
