Advanced Direct Action Training

Over Earth Day weekend, we’re hosting an advanced direct action training outside Eugene, OR. Recognizing that our tactics are failing and things are getting worse, this training will focus on escalation and creative, advanced tactics to increase our effectiveness.

This training is aimed at activists who are tired of ineffective actions. Topics will include soft and hard blockades, hit and run tactics, police interactions, legal repercussions, operational security, terrain advantages, escalation, and more.

The recommended donation registration fee will be waived for front-line activists. Priority will be given to women, people of color, and members of other marginalized groups.

Lodging is still being finalized, but camping and/or a shared house may be available. Food will be provided, and most dietary restrictions can be accommodated. Anyone who wants to attend this training can apply using the registration form below.

Friday will include only a short, optional evening program.
