Green and Black Cross Legal Observer Training
Saturday 10 September 2011 – 1.00-5.30 pm (with tea breaks)
Come along to the Legal Observer training if you are interested in getting involved in the legal aspects of actions and protests. As a Legal Observer, you’ll be making lots of notes about arrests and other incidents, you’ll find witnesses, and you’ll monitor police behaviour. In this extensive training, you learn how to position yourself, what sorts of things to look for and some basics about the law. Legal Observers are consistently very key to helping people at protests, whether that is by handing out key legal advice on bust cards or finding witnesses.

The Battle for Stirchley
This Sunday, 11th September, we will be going ahead with our plans to take over the proposed ASDA site for a couple of hours and turn it into a sports field and community garden. The plan is to meet at Birmingham Social Centre (Whitmarley, Ivy Rd), from 1pm, and head onto the site. Bring a picnic.
If you want to take part in a football match, please wear suitable clothing and does anyone have a football they don’t mind being kicked about on concrete? Also we’ll need something to mark out goal posts if you have any ideas on that front…
The space already has DIY Skatepark being built on site so feel free to bring a board.
There may be a press photographer there, but if not we’ll take some of our own photo’s and send them to the press – please bring your camera’s!
