NO KXL Pledge of Resistance civil disobedience training

Training for those who want to participate in peaceful civil disobedience to stop the Keystone XL pipeline, organized by CREDO/Rainforest Action Network/The Other 98%. There are five separate actions planned for NYC, but we'll be training together. Note that the actions themselves will take place if/when the State Department decides that KXL is "in the national interest." THIS WILL PROBABLY NOT HAPPEN BEFORE MAY - but we're training now, to be ready.

Training might not take the full 4 hours. Location details will be sent to those who RSVP. NOTE THE TIME CHANGE. This was originally scheduled to start at 11am, but will now start at noon.

For more information, contact Pat Almonrode at [masked].

    I thought that the training was comprehensive, motivating and worthwhile. I learned that the 3 organizations which organized this training, Credo, The Rainforest Action Network, and The Other 98%, are planning KXL protests across the US that will include peaceful civil disobedience, including 4 or 5 in NYC (dates to be announced). I learned that there are several roles for those who want to support these events but may not want to or cannot participate in civil disobedience. I had assumed that this training was in preparation for civil disobedience at protests organized by other groups within the NYC Grassroots Alliance too but learned that this was not the case. For example, I had assumed that the training today was also preparing people for civil disobedience at the Reject and Protect event in Washington in late April in DC. Though it obviously does prepare people for other events in many ways, this was not its purpose.
