Oct 29 – Saturday’s non-violence training and planning meeting

**The non-violence training and planning meeting will be held at 28 Marcy Avenue in Brooklyn (11211). The Metropolitan G stop and the Lorimer L stop are nearby.

Howdy –

Please join us this Saturday, October 29 for a non-violent direct action training and planning meeting with Joshua Kahn Russell. Josh, who is a veteran trainer, organizer and generally awesome person, will be working with us to develop our skills as organizers and to plan the next step in local action against the Keystone XL pipeline. Lots of exciting things have been happening in New York lately, and this is an excellent opportunity to develop our community’s capacity to organize for peaceful resistance. Following our successful visit to the Manhattan Obama for America office and with Obama’s decision on the Keystone XL pipeline less than two months away, now is the time to escalate our tactics and increase the pressure on the President. The meeting will last from 1-6 pm. We’re still sorting out the location for the meeting, but it’ll probably be held in a space in Williamsburg. I’ll send out another email with final details as soon as we know. I’ll be cooking a big batch of something tasty and vegan and we’ll break for dinner. Any food you bring to share would be greatly appreciated, but you shouldn’t feel obligated to bring something. Please RSVP so we know how many people to expect and how much food to cook. And feel free to invite folks who you think might be interested. I know it’s a big time commitment, but we’d really appreciate it if you came for the entire meeting. Not having folks dip in and out will make for a more efficient meeting and a more effective group process. Looking forward to seeing you! If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch by email or phone.
