Divest East Sussex Action 24th March

As part of its campaign to compel East Sussex County Council to stop funding climate change, Divest East Sussex is planning an action that will take place in Lewes on Tuesday 24 March.*

This will be a fairly simple action, not requiring any athletic ability, elaborate costumes or equipment. However, there *will* be a possibility of arrest (though on the basis of similar actions that have taken place recently this may be unlikely). All participants will need to have attended a Nonviolent Direct Action (NVDA) training workshop AND a special briefing about the action itself (see below).

If you’ve already attended an XR NVDA workshop in the past and are interested in taking part in the action on the 24th then please: (a) email divesteastsussex@gmail.com to say you’re interested in taking part in the action on the 24th March; and (b) come to the special briefing at the Linklater Pavilion (Railway Lane, Lewes BN7 2FG), 7.45 – 9pm, Monday 16 March.

If you’re interested in being present at the action on the 24th in a non-arrestable role then please also come to the briefing on 16 March (details above).

* You should budget the whole day, though it is likely that everything will be finished by the early afternoon.
