My name is Настя (Anya) and I’m a volunteer medic and organizing activist for the legally permitted protest movement Occupy DNC. The purpose of it is to safely protest the upcoming Democratic Convention without any violence or upheaval from the people or the police and to maintain a positive environment.

To assist in reaching this goal I’m teaching Non-violent Direct Action Seminars throughout Newark until the DNC, with the second meeting happening the evening of Tuesday the 28th (exactly two weeks from now) from 7-9 pm. The training session will help you become a peacekeeper and be a trainer of NVDA in your own communities and friend circles. You can teach NVDA on any level- explaining it to a friend, using it in your own communications and relationships, or as a non-violent activist.

This is a great chance to:
-meet local activists and network
-learn about direct action vs civil disobedience
-become a non-violent direct action trainer
-meet others going to the DNC, learn what NVDA is,
…and most importantly, have your opinions be heard.

There will be refreshments served, a brief refresher course for people who are unfamiliar with NVDA or missed the first meeting, then we’ll transition into more direct preparation for the DNC, activities to teach tactics and effectiveness, and a Q&A session at the end. The training session is expected to run anywhere between 1-2 hours.

Please RSVP to the event page or, and feel free to ask any questions or voice any concerns.
Remember, if you want change in our government YOU have to make it happen. Apathy gets us nowhere and it’s what they expect of our generation of voters so prove them wrong. Bring your ideas to the table, tell your friends, and hope to see you there!
