How to Plan and Execute a Direct Action

January 16, 2021

We may not know what is coming next, but we can prepare for it anyway. Direct Action has historically been the most effective way to change the world, and we built a workshop to teach folks how it has worked, and how we can plan and execute strategic, effective, and engaging actions.

Do you want to learn effective techniques to intervene in an unjust world?
Do you want to plan effective and powerful direct actions?

East Bay DSA’s Direct Action Working Group is excited to teach our 3rd Direct Action Training! The training will take place on Zoom from 2 pm-4 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Attending both days is highly recommended. This training will cover the same ground as the previous Direct Action training which was very well received.

As racist violence, unemployment, evictions, and climate chaos keep increasing, we need to expand our capacity to leverage our collective power. This training series will introduce creative ways to escalate ongoing campaigns, participate in mass uprisings, and keep each other safe in our confrontations with capital and the state.

The training is 4 hours spread across two days. Please attend both days.
