FANG (Fighting Against Natural Gas) will be holding Nonviolent Direct Action Trainings in Providence next week at the First Unitarian Church of Providence. The organizers write:
This Spring, FANG will continue to nonviolently escalate our efforts to stop Invenergy‘s fracked-gas power plant that’s proposed for Burrillville, stop Spectra‘s continued pipeline expansion schemes and confront other forms of injustice.
“In December 100 people marched in Burrillville and eight people were arrested as part of a nonviolent direct action. Now it’s time to go bigger and stop these fracked-gas projects once and for all. Plug into the resistance and into future actions by attending one this nonviolent direct action workshop!
“We’ll cover the history of nonviolent direct action, different types of action tactics, how to carry out an action and much more. These trainings are meant to immediately help people plug into actions that will happen this Spring.”
Four trainings are planned in all, two in Providence and two in Worcester:
- Tuesday, April 5th from 6-9pm at the First Unitarian Church of Providence (1 Benevolent St)
- Thursday, April 7th from 6-9pm at the First Unitarian Church of Providence (1 Benevolent St)
- Monday, April 11th from 6-9pm at Stone Soup in Worcester (4 King Street)
- Thursday, April 14th from 6-9pm at Stone Soup in Worcester (4 King Street)
