Legal Observers are an essential part of the support we provide at protests. Whether they’re handing out key advice on bust cards, or finding witnesses for arrests, legal observers help to ensure that people protesting don’t face the legal system alone.

PLEASE NOTE: This training is only available to people who are able to legal observe at the Arms Fair protests between the 6th and 14th September in East London

You can read more about what a legal observer is in this guide.

This LO training will be happening online, via Zoom, over two days: Saturday 14th 10am-1:30pm & Sunday 15th 1:30pm -5:00pm Please note you MUST attend both days to complete the training.
