Our medical team
A medical team is composed of volunteers with varying degrees of medical training who attend protests and demonstrations to provide medical care such as first aid. They can treat trauma injuries, chemical deterrent and other crowd control weapon ailments, animal attacks, as well as general care for things like heat exhaustion, epileptic seizures, and general well-being.
Our medical team can also being reached for issues other than the ones specific to the struggle, such as sexuality, drugs or psycological issues.
Our medic team is present at all our events (live music, party, demo, action day….) : you can reach them by phone ( +33753517684 ), by calling “medics !” in case of emergency, or going in their tent dedicated to health care.
For those who want to join and/or to train
