Message from Andrew-- in Charlottesville 2.0 #demonstration_tactics
When does Lee Park open?
Everyone in the inner circle must also be explicitly aware that antifa/surj will try to get through. At the last event [REDACTED] walked right up to the circle and our guys like cleared a path for him. I walked over to make sure he wasn't going to do anything funny. Our guys need to be ready to hold position and make it so that we are a solid barrier to stop antifa from coming through.
The carolina guys have been talking about getting shields...haha
So that may be possible
I already have one. Completely game
TWP has shields
Both TWP symbols and celtic crosses
Anyone have stencils? Thinking of getting that shield and would want to put something on it and would use then when I arrive. If not ill figure it out beforehand.
Shield wall sounds delightful
Did you guys build these shields you have or purchase them?
@MatthewHeimbach Those new shields my cohost sent you should come in handy again....
If we are planning on doing a shield wall I suggest learning how to actually fight in a shield wall. Watch some SCA videos on the subject.
Start with these. Go through all three parts. They have incredibly good tips that you won't get from studying riot shield tactics
I will construct a Huwite power shield
Make sure you find time to practice what you learn before the event. Our local group will be doing lots of training before Charlottesville.
Vanguard Texas and Louisiana have shields with our logo painted on
Check out the Demonstration_tactics tag. There have been a discussion about shields there.
@Heinz - MI Agree. We need the same for our Atl group
@Albrecht von Wallenstein the gym I go to has a week of free membership with no conditions. It also has a boxing area with punching bag being set up. If any of you atl guys are interested in that I could easily meet there
@MatthewHeimbach what are your shields made out off? Vanguard makes our Shields out of Baltic birch... I've thrown a hatchet at mine pretty durable stuff
I know I'm not the only one thinking we need a large, synchonized dance routine.
^^ something the women SHOULD coordinate
@Andrew-- Have you met with any of our people in Atlanta?
@Scott Terry I have an embarrassing level of fondness for synchronized dance routines 😂
we need 4 lines of people just smoking blunts
Pot is for nogs
@everyone We need to do a march along with the rally. Should we do it on the Downtown Mall (which is closed to traffic) or should we march through the streets the way they did in Berkeley?
Blocking streets gives PD a reason to (((Shut it down!)))
If you march on the streets, get a permit first
I think the downtown mall would be better because that is where a lot of the mob incidences have been happening
