WANT TO ENHANCE YOUR ENVIRONMENTAL SKILLS TO DEFEND THE FUTURE ?
Northern River Guardians, Nimbin and the North Coast Environment Centres are facilitating a skills sharing day for non violent direct action ( aka NvDA) at Murwillumbah on Saturday March 10th.
Activists who have had success at stopping coal seam gas, slowing the advance of damaging mine projects, and creating National Parks where native forests are protected, etc will share knowledge. Participants will learn skills which will help them be effective and at the same time be safe from aggression and free of violent responses.
We invite all those who want to learn and share to attend.
Direct Action to protect native forests from logging is likely soon. The NSW government should take responsibility to protect our common wealth, but instead proposes a system of self-management for the logging industry. Logging at Limpinwood of a key link in the system of flora and fauna reserves which is a corridor for wildlife reserves in the Wollumbin caldera has stopped briefly, but is likely to resume in March. We want to be ready.
The extraction of fresh water from Tweed sources and dangerous transport by heavy vehicles may need direct action to be stopped. Fossil fuel companies (such as Adani and SANTOS) are still trying to get their way through corruption of our political processes.
Come and learn useful direct action techniques.
Attendance is free. Gather at the rotunda in the park opposite Sunnyside Shopping Centre at for a 10am start. Please bring protection from the sun, something to sit on, and preferably lunch so that you can network whilst munching. Local shops are close at hand. We will have a lunch break about 12:30 and finish between 4 and 5 PM.
