About this event

Join XR’s Nonviolence Training for Civil Disobedience and other forms of Direct Action Presented by XR Australia’s Mass Mobilisation Project

2 x 1.5hr online units on Sundays Oct 18th and 25th at 2pm AEDT (GMT+11, Melbourne/Sydney time)

NB: To participate in this training you must have been to a Heading for Extinction talk and an XR Induction (DNA) workshop. For details of how to access these, go to the XR National Talks and Trainings Calendar at https://cloud.ausrebellion.earth/…/56D…/dayGridMonth/now

The Zoom login and other information will be sent to you by email after you have registered. This training will prepare you for non-violent participation in civil disobedience.

You will leave with an understanding of why non-violence is vital to our civil disobedience actions, how it is achieved and what further steps you need to take to be ready to act. Science tells us we need immediate, unprecedented action to respond to climate change.

Australian government policies are literally adding fuel to the fires the climate crisis is driving in this country and across the world. It is up to Extinction Rebellion to take peaceful, direct action to get them to act now.

Non-violent civil disobedience has a long history of success in achieving large scale change, from Jabiluka to the Indian Independence Movement and the Civil Rights Movement. Understand how non-violent civil disobedience fits into XR’s strategic vision
