Legal Observer Training Workshop.
Sunday 21st Jan. 10.30-4.30pm.
This workshop is free but bring (vegan) lunch to share.
Legal Observers are volunteers who are part of an organised team gathering information on protests. Their presence is reassuring to protesters and can protect people from unlawful or repressive policing. You don’t need a special legal background, but you need to be able to take fast, accurate notes, be able to communicate well with others, and to stay calm under stress.
Green and Black Cross (GBC) provide training and support for Legal Observers at hundreds of demonstrations every year, their website is an amazing resource: https://greenandblackcross.org/
OK I’m interested, what do I do now? To enrol send a short summary of your interest in Legal Observing to:
