The climate and ecological crisis is worse than we feared, and the future is more uncertain than ever. The time to act is now… so let’s get prepared!

Come along to our Non-Violent Direct Action (NVDA) workshop, where you will learn about the history of Civil Disobedience, theories of Non-Violence, and various NVDA skills such as how to talk to the police, how to block a road, and how to use your support systems.

This workshop takes 3hrs, and includes 2 x 15 minute breaks – please arrive on time! There will be lots of information to learn, and chances to engage interactively with this information – it’s a good idea to bring a pen and paper. No prior knowledge is needed.

There is a lot of information to learn in this, and we will be signposting other trainings throughout – the key workshops we want you to go to as part of our ‘Road to Rebellion’ are the Know Your Rights trainings, and the Affinity Group Formation Workshops (more information about these will be discussed in the workshop itself).

This training takes place twice a month, from 10am till 1pm.

Saturdays 13/2, 13/3, 10/4, 8/5, 12/6: Registration link:

This Land is Our Land

This Land is Our Land

April 24, 2021, 12:00am

Everywhere

On 24th April 2021 every citizen of the UK is invited to mark the Kinder Scout trespass wherever and however they can. Together we will remember our radical roots and reclaim our most fundamental rights: to walk, to wander, to live.

And soon, when covid allows, we will gather together for a monumental & inspirational Mass Trespass, the likes of which our Kinder Scout ancestors would be proud…

✊🏿 ✊🏼 ✊🏽 ✊🏾 ✊🏻

In 1932, five men were jailed for their role in organising the Kinder Scout trespass of April 24th. Their crime? Walking on a hill where they were not supposed to.
This April 24th we will commemorate their actions with a trespass of our own, reconnecting with each other and exploring how the land beneath our feet affects every part of our lives.

In defiance of unjust, oppressive laws, the Kinder Scout trespass grew from the actions of 500 working men and women to a protest movement of over 10,000 people in just three weeks. These early pioneers sacrificed and fought for our right to roam these beautiful Isles. Their aims are still just as relevant.
Today, taxpayers give £3bn a year to landowners and yet…

🚧🚧🚧

...we are denied access to 92% of the land in England.


Much of that land is being criminally misused:

- Moors and peatland burned for the sake of grouse shooting

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥


- Deforestation for manicured estates and golf courses

🌳🪓🌳🪚🌳🪓🌳🪚🌳🪓🌳🪚


- and Extraction which destroys natural landscapes to name a few.

⛏🗾⛏🏭⛏🗾⛏🏭⛏🗾⛏🏭


During a climate and ecological emergency, against a backdrop of increasing inequality and division, this is a conversation that cannot wait.

🚧🚧🚧🚧🚧🚧🚧🚧🚧🚧🚧

GET INVOLVED

On 24th April…
