Cakes To Blockades

November 21, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Come support Upton Community Protection Camp. Including 2 workshops … A role for everyone come eviction day

Workshop: Cakes To Blockades … 100 ways of resisting Upton eviction – 11am – 1pm

There will be roles for everyone during the eviction. It’s not just about locking yourself to a concrete barrel or hiding in a tunnel! There’ll be someone to talk to the press, someone to keep it visual with banners and someone to catapult cake over police lines to feed the people inside. This workshop will give you the chance to share different reasons for resisting eviction, and explore different ways of doing it as safely and effectively as possible.

Workshop: Know Your Rights – 2-4pm

Police and security often rely on communities not knowing much about the law: with a little bit of knowledge we can protest with much more confidence. Workshop covers: how you can respond when police and security approach you, what laws they might use against people resisting eviction, and what might happen if someone is arrested.
