Scouting for Events and Actions
Posted 3 years ago by Toronto Charities / 76 views
Whether you are planning a march, sit-down, picket, meeting disruption, a banner drop or a blockade, it is often important to check out the location in advance. Scouting the location well can help you plan an action that is safe, effective, and less likely to be foiled. This workshop will introduce you to the basics of scouting for situations where you are trying to go unnoticed to maintain an element of surprise.
