Teams and groups to join

These are teams of people that work together on a common area of work e.g. Media and Messaging who cover press liaison, photography, social media etc. or around a campaign focus e.g. the Divestment working group. Also we have a samba drumming band called Band of Outlaws, to provide the energy and noise at actions.

We need people behind the scenes as well as on the streets. If you can offer time and skills, we’d really like to hear from you! Once a week a representative from each of these groups is invited to meet together and share information.

Everyone takes on tasks voluntarily. You can get involved as much or as little as you like.
