The international community probably needs some guidelines to protests as well, so here goes. I know a lot of you are from Chanology, so if you have any protest tips, plz2b posting them as well if I didn't, and I'll update the OP. KEEP IN MIND THESE ARE NOT INSTRUCTIONS FOR IRANIAN PROTESTS. The points made here are tailored for the protests taking place across the globe in support of the Iranian people. - Wear clothing appropriate to your environment. I live in Florida, so I should probably wear something that breathes. Someone in Australia would want to wear layers right now, seeing as it's their autumn/winter. Keep up to date on the weather forecasts and bring jackets, umbrellas, etc as necessary. You might want to have these anyway if your weather is unpredictable. Also, sunscreen! Sunburns suck, prevent them with sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, and scarves. - Jewelry should be small and close to the body. Big dangly earrings and long necklaces need to stay home, as they can get caught on things easily or hinder your movement. - Comfy shoes that either keep you warm in wet/cold environments, or breathe easily for the disgustingly hot ones. Cotton socks work best in either. - Keep bottled water with you. Even when the weather is cold, protests can't take a lot out of you, whether you're marching or standing on a sidewalk. You might want to bring some snack food as well if you have blood sugar problems, along with your inhaler if you have asthma, etc. - A small backpack/purse is good for keeping your ID, car keys, cell phone, camera, etc. It's also a good housing for your bottled water, asthma inhalers, or snack food. Keep it securely on your person at all times, and don't bring large amounts of money with you, just in case you get mugged or it gets stolen. - If you're from out of whatever city you're protesting in, bring a map! Locals might not be that great at giving you directions to go home. Bring a pen, too, so you can keep track of your location. - If you can, bring extra sign-making equipment. Yours could get damaged, or you might see a really catchy slogan. Works best if you're parked nearby. - If there's a possibility of violence in your area, you really should have a camera of some kind on you, along with your cell phone. Having a recording of the perpetrator is something we've learned the hard way in Chanology. - Along with the above, remember to practice Ghandi-tech. Peaceful protests are the best, even though you may be furious about the deaths taking place in Iran. Keep a level head, even if someone is saying horrid things. - Tell someone who isn't going where you'll be in case things get bad and you're unable to call loved ones from your location. Like I said, post other tips and I'll update the OP.
