Direct Action Training
Wednesday 4/25Potluck Supper 5:30 – 6:30
Training 6:30 – 9:00Struggles for justice have intensified this year as our communities face an all-out assault on our rights. Growing ranks of activists getting organized to fight back find increased repression targeting protest and free speech. If ever a moment called us to bold action it is now.

Direct action can be a powerful tool to focus our collective power. In this highly interactive workshop we’ll explore the basics of how to plan organize and implement a safe, effective direct action. topics covered will include de-escalating behaviors in tense situations, quick decision-making, roles and responsibilities and more.

This training is offered in support of our movements for justice in this region by Occupy RVA and the Wayside Center for Popular Education.

Trainer: Jeff Winder

Lots of people have been wondering what the plans are regarding May Day in Richmond this year. Some folks planning some events are getting together on Thursday at 6pm at the Flying Brick Library (506 S Pine St.)

They emailed out an announcement about the meeting, but to a small list of people, so we are passing word along so that more folks can hopefully be included and aware.

They’ve listed some of the events planned, but it is by no means a full list. In addition to the Pre-May Day Show at the Wingnut on Friday April 27th, there are more events TBA.

Please go to the meeting if you are interested in planning for May Day.

More from them…

TO THOSE PLANNING WORKSHOPS, ACTIONS, ETC. AROUND MAY FIRST, OR THOSE WHO
ARE INTERESTED IN ASSISTING IN SOME CAPACITY:

Folks currently functioning as a coordinating committee for May Day and
the preceding weekend have set out a five-day plan of events as a general
guideline based on the intentions/actions being discussed and planned. The
objective of this coordinating body is only to schedule, facilitate space,
and assist others in ensuring fluidity and cross-pollination in all events
and efforts, while encouraging autonomous action.

To ensure a strong but flexible scheme, it is apparent that a central
meeting is dire for organizers to be on the same page.

We are calling for a meeting at 6pm this coming Thursday at The Flying
Brick Library (506 S. Pine St, Richmond, VA 23220). We understand that
this is short notice, but we have little time left and MUST get the ball
rolling. If you cannot make this meeting, please try to submit any
questions or pertinent information to be delivered to this email (try not
to “Reply All”). The facilitators will take care to shop this out. (more…)
