Street Medic Training, Boston, February
28 Dec 2003
Would you like to become a street medic for progressive political demonstrations? Would you like to learn basic skills that would be useful for protests, outdoor adventures and community first aid?
Training includes basic first aid, injury prevention, treatment for pepper spray and tear gas, management of injuries from other weapons (rubber bullets, batons, etc.), tools to help provide emotional support during stressful situations, and much much more.

No previous medical or demonstration experience is necessary. The training is specifically designed to train street medics, who provide first aid and support during demonstrations and direct actions. However, the information is useful for anyone who might deliver first aid in the community or who might encounter police oppression and brutality.

February 6 - 8, 2004 * Boston, MA * Sliding Scale Fee


We ask for a $20-40 donation to cover materials and travel for our trainers, but do not want expense to be a barrier for anyone who wants to participate. We can help with housing for anyone coming from out of town. We hope to be able to provide child care during the workshop.

For more information, go to
email bostonmedics (at)
call 857 891-1666 (a local call from the Boston area)

Please forward this email to anyone who you think might be interested.

The BALM Squad

* The Boston Area Liberation Medic Squad (BALM Squad) is an all-volunteer, non-hierarchical, consensus run organization that aims to provide medical support, by all means at our individual and collective disposal, at progressive political demonstrations and direct actions. We also seek to facilitate the dissemination of medical knowledge for the empowerment of the progressive community. We value diversity in both our own organization and in the larger struggle against oppression.
