The practice is the most effective gateway practice for learning, practicing and deepening listening and empathy skills, as well as, nurturing an empathic way of being

Talk- Intro to Money Rebellion

Talk- Intro to Money Rebellion

May 26, 2021, 7:30pm - May 26, 2021, 9:00pm

Book using the link above. A Zoom link will be included when you book.

To stop the climate and ecological crisis we need to change the economic system that’s fuelling it. Join us online and find out how!

About this Event

This talk is for anyone in the UK or beyond. The climate and ecological emergency is still getting worse. Racism and exploitation of poorer nations is still rife. Most of our ‘free’ press is still captive to the will of a few billionaires.

We cannot halt any of these crises without changing the economic system that fuels them. Join us in rejecting the economic rules and financial institutions that are killing us.

The talk will cover how the economic system is fuelling the crisis and what you can do as a citizen to take action to change that system.

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:

Sundays 31/1, 28/2, 28/3, 25/4, 30/5, 27/6

🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊Catch the G7 Wave to Rebellion! 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊

📣 G7 Cornwall Rebellion ~ Drowning in Promises ~ 10 - 13 June 📣

The G7, leaders of the world’s richest democratic nations are meeting in Cornwall on 11-13 June 2021 - and we will be there to greet them!

The G7 Summit will play a crucial role in climate negotiations this year, laying the path for the G20 Summit and COP26. The need for G7 countries to step up their ambition and make good on their promises has never been greater.

⚡️We are calling on EVERYBODY who can, to stand up and take action in Cornwall⚡️

Over this weekend we’re planning a series of COVID-safe, nonviolent mass participation actions across mid-Cornwall; from Carbis Bay and St Ives to Falmouth and beyond. We will be on the beaches, headlands and town streets bringing our message to the G7: We’re Drowning In Promises; Act Now!

Full Action Brief to follow, including how to book a space at our campsite! In the meantime ~
