Legal Observer Training – Horsham Sat Nov 26th & York Sat Dec 3rd
Green and Black Cross and the Network for Police Monitoring (Netpol) are offering free legal observer training in preparation for the next wave of opposition to extreme energy extraction / fracking in the South East & Yorkshire. This is important training not just for anti-frackers and all campaigners are welcome.
Legal observers are trained volunteers who support the legal rights of activists. They provide basic legal information and are independent witnesses of police behaviour at protests. They support protestors by distributing bust cards, briefing protesters about their rights, keeping notes about the actions of the police and monitoring arrests.
If you’re an experienced activist there will be parts you know already, but the depth we go into should give you more confidence and knowledge of how to deal with the police. Whether you’re in a group or attending as an individual, this extensive training offers you important skills to support other campaigners.
