NVDA (Non-Violent Direct Action) Training Cancelled

Saturday 22 February, 11am-4pm, Lansdowne Methodist Church, Malvern WR14 2AW
On this NVDA training, you will find out how to non-violently take part in Extinction Rebellion actions. It is highly recommended for all rebels taking part in any XR action, whether they intend to be arrested or not. We will cover the philosophy and practice of non-violent techniques, showing you how to de-escalate tense situations, how to interact with the police, what to do if you decide to risk arrest, and how to support others if you choose not to risk arrest. If you are planning to join this training, please send a quick email to xrmalvern_media@riseup.net to give us an idea of numbers. Don’t forget to bring a packed lunch !

Enough is Enough March in London

Saturday 22 February, 1-5pm, Central London
Join a group from XR Malvern travelling on the train to London to take part in this massive XR March of love and solidarity! Rebels from around the country will be joining you. We are still working out timings but XR Malvern people will probably leave on the 8:48am train to Paddington, returning on the 5:50pm or 6:50pm train. If you buy your ticket together with 2 other people, you get a 25% discount. We are also offering 2 travel bursaries to rebels who would like to attend but can’t afford the train fare. Please email xrmalvern_media@riseup.net to request one of the travel bursaries. If you can’t attend the march but would like to sponsor another rebel by paying their fare, please contact us as well and we can increase the number of bursaries offered!

XR Malvern Hills Nature Walk

Sunday 15 March, 10:00-12:00pm, Hollybed Farm Meadows, New Road, Castlemorton, Worcestershire WR13 6BU
Join the XR Malvern Regen group for a relaxing and inspiring Nature Walk at the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust Reserve Hollybed Farm Meadows. Iszi has been volunteering here for several years and will tell you about the work that is being done to restore the meadows to their former glory. Although it’s a bit early for the flowers, the walk should be interesting and regenerative! The walk is fairly level but the paths are not paved and likely to be muddy in places. Dogs must be on a lead.
Meet at the reserve entrance on New Road: turn off the B4208 opposite the Robin Hood Pub. Please car share if you can: email us at xrmalvern_regen@riseup.net or comment on the Facebook page. There is limited parking near the gate. See link below for map and further details. We are happy to arrange lifts from the Great Malvern train station for anyone travelling from further afield.
