99% Spring Non-Violent Direct Action Training
Saturday, 14 Apr 2012, 10:00 AM - 5PM

The 99% Spring is a broad activist Coalition with one goal: to train 100,000 people in Non-Violent Direct Action in one week, culimating to 6 weeks of concentrated actions against the ruling class across the country.

I am hosting and training one of the larger 7 hour trainings on Saturday April 14th.  The curriculum covers a brief history of non-violent direct action and the financial crisis, the tactics of 1%, and what we can do to cultivate collective power to fight back including campaign strategy building and tactical planning.  This is a free training. 

If you are interested in attending this training, please register here.

Attendence is limited, so if you want to attend, please register ASAP.

Also, I am aware there may be some that are concerned about working with a coalition that includes organizations like Moveon.  I recommend checking out this article that explores some of those concerns:

Also, enclosed below is a complete list of the organizations in the 99% Spring Coalition:
