On Sunday September 25 between 1pm and 8pm there was a training for participants in the September 26th tar sands/Keystone XL civil disobedience.
The training was intended to ensure that people understood the legal implications and practical logistics of the action. The training was mandatory for all participants and it emphasized the importance of non-violent direct action.
In addition to the safety reasons, the training was crucial to make sure that everyone acted together. One of the goals was to build group solidarity and trust for the action.
