Legal Observer Training at Common House
Date(s) - 29/03/2014
11:00 am - 5:30 pm
The Common House, Unit 5E,
Have you ever been at a demo, near a line of police, and witnessed the police do something you’re pretty sure they’re not supposed to do? Ever wondered how you can: a) know what to do, and b) how you can help them?
Now is your chance to find out.
We’re running a Legal Observer training in London:
Saturday 29th March
11-5:30 (with a break for lunch, lunch not provided)
Our standard Legal Observer training is very comprehensive, covering:
– Police tactics
– Stop & search law & procedure
– How to support arrests
– Police ranks & command structure
– Supporting direction action
– How to best legally support activists and nail the inappropriate policing afterwards
Legal Observers are consistently key to helping people at protests, whether that is by handing out key legal advice on bust cards or finding witnesses for 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.
**Come and be part of the essential infrastructure of protests, and get to know your rights while you’re at it!**
Common House Unit 5E (press the buzzer), 5 Pundersons Gardens, Bethnal Green E2 9QG
