In this fun and interactive NVDA training, you will find out how to take part in Extinction Rebellion actions. We will cover the philosophy and practice of non-violent techniques: showing you how to de-escalate tense situations, how to interact with the police, what to do if you decide to risk arrest, and how to support others if you choose not to risk arrest.
