In March, Ruckus trainers Hannah Strange and Adrienne Maree Brown traveled to Bermuda to train Introduction to Nonviolent Direct Action and Action Strategy. The local community was working on a wide variety of issues, from environmental sustainability to getting sexual orientation added to their human rights bill.
There was a lot of sharing around the politeness of the "Bermudian" way – it was a massive stretch for most of the folks to consider shouting chants during a meeting, or stopping traffic with a blockade. When folks actually engaged in the role play it was invigorating!
We’ve already been asked to come back with even more training and action support, and our network is very interested in supporting this community to get action ready!
