Protest essentials - cleef - 02-28-2011 02:58 PM
I'm hoping to build a list for people to know what essential items they should bring to a demo, rather than just a placard reading "i hope you read my sign"
So far i've got:
Masks (or something able to adequately conceal your identity)
Bust cards (cards with details of a good solicitor)
Spare pair of clothes
Backpack (to carry all the shit above)
Anyone else got any good suggestions of what to add to the list

a big sheild covered in bullet prove vests which protects the front lines?

Please do not blame me if you get caught with the last two! They are only suggested if you plan to stay out of the way of the police the whole time - and not get kettled. Which if you have half a brain, you won't.

ha i like your enthusiasm!
However im not sure of practicality and what that would cost...

A megaphone, so the shit you scream is even louder!
Protective glasses.. might look stupid but you'll be glad to have them when the teargass gets shot.
A good pair of shoes, when you gotta stand all day or get the fuck outta that place you sure as hell can use some good shoes.

made so it would fit inside a transit van so could be a width of car or so, most the costs would be body armour , would be like a trolley pushed from behind with some slits in to see forward, could even have a little side protection also so then u could only get shot from behind where the masses of protestors would be.
Or you could make some riot kind of sheilds layered with the body armour so u each person with them hide behind it protecting them selves and the others out of line of site of the shooters.
would also help at close range

Pepper spray -if it`s legal in your country. If not , you might get into trouble with it,like here in Denmark(been there , done that)...

I hope your not planning on doing anything unscrupulous cleef!

What you need are:
Black Cargo Pants.
Black Long Sleeve shirt (with a thick under shirt for less pain when you get beat...)
A Black Backpack.
A Rag around your face with your eyes exposed.
and... A lighter. Who's going to light all the shit on fire?
Oh, and money.
For when you get hungry. You might want to stop by McDonalds and pick up a dollar menu item.

Body armour would surely just mark you out as a target?
It's illegal to mask your face like that isn't it

Steel-toed boots for when shit gets real
Brask knuckles for when shit gets real
All Black everything
