No event happening near you? you can also watch a recorded version online (in English), it’s only about the first hour of the video.

Attend an NVDA training

To be able to join us as an activist on the street, we highly recommend you attend one of our non-violent direct action trainings.

If you really want to get involved and commit some time every week to help organise the rebellion in Denmark, you can also join one of our national working groups. The easiest way to do so is to attend one of our intro meetings. These meetings are specifically designed to get new rebels to understand our structure and ways of working in more detail, and help them find the place in the organisational body most suited for them. Our online communication platforms will be explained as well. Find them on our event page and on Facebook.
