Sunday 19 June @ the Institute for Autonomy, 78 Gower St, London WC1 (Nearest tubes: Russell Sq, Goodge St, Warren St, Buses: Tottenham Court Rd.)

A day of discussion, skill sharing and hands-on workshops with an emphasis on affinity group actions.

The afternoon will be an opportunity to explore specific tactics and how to get away with them. Come and share skills with others: learn to hit them where it hurts!
