From the G8 action trainers group
Gonna take action at the G8, at home or elsewhere? Thought about direct action training in your town?
They bring in new people and revive retired activists. And if you're a bit rusty on some things - using arm tubes, dealing well with public order situations, how does Scottish law work, how to support each other through stressful situations and arrest - then NOW is the time to get on with it!
We are calling on people to:
* Organise trainings in direct action skills, legal knowledge, quick decision making, support systems, and all the rest in the places where they live.
* Do these trainings for yourselves, and also open them up to others in your area and offer them to other groups.
Let us share our skills, what we know, our experiences - and let us inspire each other. And let's work now to make it all happen. The most effective actions we've done in the past show how well we can pull things together when we plan - act - reflect - act"
Get in touch to...
*tell us you're organising a workshop. We can publicise it on our website and pass on the details to anyone who contacts us from your area.
*tell us if you need help - with working out what to cover, or help in facilitating the training or publicity.
*we can also put people in touch with each other who live nearby, or who have similar interests.
