Executing actionPerformed from a non-menu context

While working on my plugin gitflow4idea I ran into the following issue:

I'm trying to run the git merge tool for conflicted files whenever a feature/release branch is finished.

For that I need to run the actionPerformed method of GitResolveConflictsAction, which extends git4idea.actions.GitAction .
The problem is that the signature of actionPerformed  has the argument of @NotNull AnActionEvent event

Since I'm not calling this method from a menu context, but rather after parsing the git flow command line output , I don't have any AnActionEvent event.

I tried constructing a dummy event:

AnActionEvent e =  new AnActionEvent(null, DataManager.getInstance().getDataContext(), ActionPlaces.UNKNOWN, new Presentation(), null, 0);

but it fails with:

Access is allowed from event dispatch thread only.
           Details: Current thread: Thread[ApplicationImpl pooled thread 45,4,Idea Thread Group] 258089001
           Our dispatch thread:Thread[AWT-EventQueue-1 13.0#IC-132.947, eap:true,6,Idea Thread Group] 569230622
           SystemEventQueueThread: Thread[AWT-EventQueue-1 13.0#IC-132.947, eap:true,6,Idea Thread Group] 569230622

Is there a way to get around this, or a better way to invoke actionPerformed method? (The method doesn't use the AnActionEvent argument at all)



This is the correct way to invoke actionPerformed(), but you do have to invoke it from the event dispatch thread.
