Green and Black Cross will be running a ‘Know Your Rights’ workshop which aims to give anti-fracking campaigners the knowledge to combat repressive police tactics commonly used against protesters.

Topics covered:
  1. Our Key Messages: The most important thing you can take with you on a protest.
  2. Police Tactics and Private Security: Who are these police liaison teams and what is their role
  3. Stop and Search: Understand the limits of what the police can search for and learn how to resist information gathering techniques used by officers.

  5. Laws commonly used against protesters: We’ll put you in the shoes of a police officer on the hunt to make some arrests.
