Non-Violent Direct Action training

The Baird Government is rushing ahead with its $18 billion plan to lock Sydney into decades of motorway building and associated high-rise redevelopment. The only way to bring a halt to the madness now is non-violent direct action. This is your opportunity to learn its theory and practice!

Course includes: introduction and overview, the current role of NVDA in the campaign, fears and concerns, legal aspects, roles in direct action, practical and emotional preparation, physical tactics and role play.
