Direct Action Workshop

October 24 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Climate Disobedience Center, in partnership with friends at 350VT and the No Coal No Gas campaign, are excited to offer this full-day online nonviolent direct action training to members of our network preparing to support democracy following the November 3rd election.

This training aims to be of the most use to those who have participated in nonviolent direct action or NVDA trainings before and want to refresh their practice and prepare for post-election scenarios.

They ask that participants make a full-day commitment to this program from 9AM through 4PM. There will be significant breaks over the course of the day to keep us all from loosing our Zoom brains.

For more information about this training email info@climatedisobedience.org.

The 6th largest weapons contractor in the world has branch nestled next to Northampton’s community garden. Under the guise of innovation, L3 Harris is creating weapons and surveillance technology to violently oppress and kill our neighbors locally and globally. We’re calling on our community to acknowledge the military industrial complex in Western Mass. We will keep organizing until our elected officials, institutions of higher learning, and nonprofits to divest from the war machine. From Palestine to Mexico, the war machine has got to go!

Join us on Saturday October 24th at 11AM as we build our community and rally against L3 Harris! We will practice social distancing and wear masks. Make your own sign, or use one of ours. This action is sponsored by The Resistance Center and Liyang Network of Western Mass.
