Accommodation

Posted on by

There will be floor space for sleeping at the Kinning Park Complex Convergence Centre, for the Sunday & Monday nights. You must register with us here and  let  us  know  when  to  expect  you  at  the accommodation.

Go to http://scraptrident.org/training-workshops/accomodation-and-training-registration/  to register for accommodation and NVDA Training.

If  you  anticipate getting arrested, you may need to register for accommodation on the Monday evening, as you may not be released from police custody until quite late (see the Legal Briefing section for more details).

Please note that Safer Spaces and No Alcohol agreements will be in place at the accommodation, as well as the same non-violence guidelines  applicable  to  the  blockade

You should bring your own sleeping bags and mats, and there will be storage for these and personal belongings while we are away at the blockade. Hot vegan meals will be provided in the evenings as well as sandwich and breakfast making facilities. The accommodation and food will be funded on a donations basis so please give what you can afford.

If you are unable to sleep on the floor for health or other reasons and can’t make other arrangements we will try to find you alternative accommodation, but please only request this via the registration form if you need it, as spaces will be limited.
