We are calling for everyone to come in self-sufficient affinity groups that have already made some plans for the blockade and discussed what to do at the gates. Affinity groups make it easier to look after everyone's welfare and safety and keep track of arrests for legal support. An affinity group is a group of about 6-18 people who support each other during an action. As well as including people prepared to risk being arrested there are also important support roles that require some people in each affinity group who are choosing not to be arrested.
Many of these affinity groups will be based around the Faslane 365 Blockading Groups who have already taken action at Faslane over the last year. New affinity groups are welcome. People who don’t have an affinity group can come to Glasgow on Sunday Sept 30th, join an action workshop and find a group to work with.
