These can include: liaising with the police, ensuring people’s wellbeing, providing first-aid, embedding nonviolence, de-escalation, engaging in outreach with the public, marshalling marches, drumming courageously, creating beautiful banners; supporting in the back office, turning up at police stations to support rebels - and more!

This isdocument outlines the various Action Support responsibilities, to help you think about your role. If you’re looking for guidance on an action you are planning see our Action Support Triage document or email the Action Support External Coordinator and arrange a meeting!
