WORKSHOPS DESCRIPTIONS


11:30-130: NONVIOLENT DIRECT ACTION/ PEOPLE POWER
An introductory training on what disobedience and nonviolent direct action are, how to prepare ourselves before, during and after and how we can use nonviolent direct action to escalate the movement to overthrow the Wall St 1% and build a better world. This training is for anyone who wants to learn about taking effective direct action (or supporting others).

Facilitator: Nupur Modi has facilitated nonviolent direct action and disobedience trainings--and coordinated actions-- in many movements and campaign, from Free Tibet to the labor movement.

3:30-5:30: CONSENSUS MEETING & GENERAL ASSEMBLY FACILITATION
This workshop is particularly for people who are or may help with occupation general assembly meeting facilitation. All over the country, people are flocking to the streets to join occupations demanding a just system for the 99%. It’s an inspiring vision: thousands of people participating in direct democracy, making decisions, having their voices heard. And it’s a potential nightmare—thousands of ordinary Americans being subjected to really bad, ponderous consensus meetings, fleeing in frustration and anguish and ready to accept any tyranny over the prospect of more long meetings! Consensus process can be wonderful—or terrible. At it’s best, it can be empowering, creative and efficient. But for that to happen, people need to understand and agree upon the process. Facilitators need training and skill. And the group as a whole needs to invest some trust in the facilitation team.

Starhawk is a San Francisco based activist, trainer, and author who had been involved in movements against corporate capitalism for many years.
