Climate change is endangering all life on Earth and is no longer a problem that lies in the future. If we want to resist the most fatal impacts of climate change we need to cut off the consumption of oil, coal, and gas. The urgency for change makes us from Code Rood believe that we need to switch from public mass protest to mass civil disobedience. Only if we join forces and dare to take climate resistance to the next level we can cut of the power of the fossil fuel industry and create a sustainable fossil free future for us all. That’s why on the 24th of June, Code Rood, together with other concerned citizens, will perform a civil disobedience action in the harbour of Amsterdam – Europe’s biggest gasoline and second biggest coal harbor – with the ambition to close the ports for the biggest environmental polluters and to push forward for sustainability.

But what does civil disobedience during a climate action actually entail? What are concrete reasons for its legitimacy and what are potential risks?

To be well prepared for our CODE ROOD action on the 24th of June but also for the upcoming Ende Gelände Action in Germany on 24th-29th of August (https://www.ende-gelaende.org/en/) we invite you to a training organized by the trainer collective Stroomversnellers and us to inform you and practice the most important aspects you need to know to participate in a successful civil disobedience action. Special focus will be on the elaboration of security risks, safety, group building, the introduction and forming of affinity groups, practicing action tactics, and, of course, on having fun!

The training will be active and participatory and suits all types of experience levels. More experienced participants are very welcome to share, to meet new people or to reflect on and refresh their skills. Less experienced people are strongly advised to join the trainings if you consider joining the actions.
