Introduction to Design Elements

These design elements have been collated from ideas from the UK Creative Circle and gathered from actions seen all across the movement.

Have a look around, get inspired, you can chop and change anything on this actions menu to tailor it to be more relevant to local issues in your area.

Ideas for getting started

We are all crew. This means the rebellion starts with you, we are all part of the team and we find ways so that everyone can be included. If you don’t have a local group, then make one. We just get stuck in and learn on the job! All you need is the willingness to create change.

We are decentralised. This means there is no hierarchy. You don’t need to ask permission to instigate taking action and getting started on your idea or group. As long as it fits with our Demands and Principles and Values, it's a go!

Here Comes Everyone. Our current strategy is about gaining a wider spectrum of support. We are encouraging you to think local and also expand outwards to groups outside of your usual circles. This could involve engaging with different religious groups, BPOC (Black and People of Colour) and LGBT+ groups.

TOP TIPS for engaging with different communities outside your own:

The Spice-ometer

The menu items are marked ‘spicy’ according to level of risk of arrest. Please keep in mind that any action can become ‘spicy’, depending on police discretion. Please carefully consider your personal situation before taking part, this is your responsibility.

We recommend always having ‘Know Your Rights Training’, before taking part in actions. Some actions will have alterations you can make to make it more or less spicy if you want to. That being said, we know that you don’t need an action to be spicy to be impactful! We have designed this menu for all levels of participation, including children.

🌶️Sweet - Low risk actions that are unlikely to lead to arrest.

🌶️🌶️Mild - Medium risk actions that may or may not lead to arrest.

🌶️🌶️🌶️Hot - Higher risk actions that are likely to get you arrested.
