"Behind our black mask, behind our armed voice, behind our un-namable name, behind what you see of us, behind this we are you. We are the same simple ordinary men and women that are repeated in all races, painted in all colors, speak in all languages and live in all places. Behind this we are you."
In any Demonstration during a coming Revolution, there are people that are there to protest, and people who know they are there to further the Revolution. The current Government believes that by killing Fred Hampton and scattering the Panthers, dismantling the Chicano Movement, the American Indian Movement, that they have killed the Revolution. But look at Ferguson, Baltimore, Charlotte, etc. The Revolution is not dead, and Trump is throwing fuel on it.
A few things to know when protesting:
Choose your targets carefully. A few examples would be in the 30s people loved it when Banks were robbed because of the Great Depression, in the 60s and 70s people wanted to see the Military dismantled because of Vietnam. The CIA wrote a manual about choosing targets and mentioned that with the support of the people even assassination of judges, etc, can be seen as the right option by the community.
Before protesting, email local news outlets and end the message with "###" at the bottom in the middle of the page. This is called a Press Release.
Find a lawyer or group of lawyers that is down, and write his/her number on your wrist and spread the number to others.
Pass out a flyer or slip with a list of reasons that everyone is there, or a list of demands, so everyone knows why they are there.
Police will do something called a "Show of force" which always includes a line, but can also include stomping and banging on shields. Improvised musical instruments (large trash cans, etc) can be brought to use as a counter show of force.
Mineral Oil can inhibit the effects of Mace Pellets.
Gloves can be used to throw gas back at Police.
Hand Chops/Judo Chops can be used more effectively than fists when getting out of Police custody, and when someone frees themselves or is freed from Police custody it is called a "de-arrest".
If a ring of people with arms locked is created behind the mass of the crowd, they can not run when the Police confront them.
Smoke bombs can be created using Sugar and Potassium Nitrate, 1 lb or more can fill a whole city block.
When protests move towards jails, it makes the Police nervous because they are already outnumbered by the people in there.
Tasers, Mace, etc (things Police use) can be brought by both sides, Police are not the only people with access to these things. Sling shots can also be useful.
