Peace movement activities in November

We’re just two weeks away from the start of the Week of Peace. Here’s a run-down of some key events coming up. Please join us!

Non-violent Direct Action (NVDA) training
Come along to our training session & get ready for some peace action! You don’t need to have any special skills to participate in any part of the blockade. We are inviting everyone to take part in a training session on Sunday, 13 November (2pm-5pm) or Monday, 14 November (6pm-9pm). These training sessions will help people to prepare for the blockade with discussions around tactics, role-plays, legal information and safety info. The trainings are not required, but recommended for anyone who is keen to take part.
