Feed your mind, learn new skills, meet the people you've been waiting for and shake it in the streets!
Come join us this summer for an intensive urban action camp and build your skills as an activist.
No War No Warming is doing its part to grow our movement by hosting a four day action camp in Washington D.C. July 21-24th. Our trainings will be very participatory and will focus not only on building your skills and theory, but will also place you in the streets of D.C. practicing mobile direct action tactics. The overall goal of these trainings is to teach the necessary tools to effectively organize your community and/or campus to resist imperialism and build a sustainable world.
In addition to a few presentations, subversive games, some cool stories about contemporary and historical struggles, we will be doing trainings in the following areas:
Social Movements - History and Theory
Pillars of Empire and People Power Strategies
Conscious Organizing for Collective Liberation
Campaign Strategy – How to escalate and kick booty
Direct Action - Theory and practice how to get the goods
Mobile Tactics – oh yeah! Keep it moving….
Art, Messaging and Media
Facilitation and Consensus – or, How to end painful meetings!
Community Building Skills
We will also spend time learning about some of the most pressing issues in our world today; climate change, war, and social justice. Discussion will center around deepening our analysis of how these issues are connected and how to empower activists with new frameworks for understanding their campus and community.
Join us in the heart of the empire, Washington DC, July 21th-24th for four solid days of training and together we can build the social movement needed to end climate change and the US global war creating terror!
