Welcome everybody, thank you so much for coming to this very important training...
What today is about: (Embellish as necessary)
Helping us prepare a foundation of nonviolent civil disobedience for 2022 by increasing our capacity to be nonviolent when facing aggression, practical skills to help us de-escalate and remain grounded in challenging situations and an opportunity to learn and explore additional ground rules and skills relevant to actions in March.
Contemplate the difficult consequences we may face from the state and society as a result of civil disobedience (and climate breakdown!). Eg. police and public violence, facing arrest, longer prison sentences, losing assets and security.
