The Rebellion will be Regenerative

Debrief of the Festival of Love and Rage

On Thursday 3rd December, we will hold our all-in debrief following the Festival of Love and Rage.

Debrief is at Uniting Church in the City, Main Hall. Head into 97 William Street entrance and go through to lift. Go to 1st floor. Walk around past offices and keep walking till you find the Hall. You have found us!!

Arrive from 5pm, BYO dinner, for debrief from 6-9pm.

Everybody is welcome to come, reconnect and share your thoughts and feelings about the action.

Principle #5 is to Reflect and Learn, so as to continually improve. One of the key conditions for movements to be successful, is to be persistent! Our Demands were not met on Friday – so what is next?

If you can’t make it – you might like to make a note and reply back to xrwa@protonmail.com so that we can add it to the discussion on Thursday:

  • What did you see that made an impression on you?

  • What was great?

  • What would you do again or improve on?

  • What was not great?

  • What would you like to avoid next time?

  • What do you think should come next?

When we disrupt, we are often disrupted. Post-Action care and wellbeing are vital to our movement being strong and regenerative!

This can manifest itself physically, cognitively and emotionally in the body.

Stress reactions can occur immediately or be delayed for hours, days or weeks after the event.

Stress reactions are usually temporary – most individuals find the reactions have resolved within days or first weeks.
