Non-Violent Direct Action Training: Blockade Weapons Expo


Sun 1 Oct 2017, 11:30am–3:30pm

Where: Innermost Gardens Site, Lawson Place, Mt Victoria, Wellington

Restrictions: All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Admission: Free

The Weapons Expo is coming back to Wellington on 10th & 11th October - together we can shut it down!

Every year, arms dealers, the military and the government come together at the Weapons Expo to make deadly deals about weapons and war. This year they're planning a greater focus on 'trade stalls', aka more guns and killing machines. We're planning to shut it down with a community blockade.

Come along to prepare for the day with a free non-violent direct action (NVDA) training session on Sunday 1st October. We will build collective understanding of what non-violent direct action is, share tactics we can use on the day, and discuss dealing with media and police.

The event is open to people of all ages, abilities and NVDA experience levels who are interested in coming along to the Weapons Expo blockade. So whether you're new to protest or you've used NVDA for years and fancy a refresher, nau mai, haere mai.

We will provide some kai to keep us all going.

More details about the blockade can be found here:

We are also holding a public meeting on the 28th September:
