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.

Shield wall?

2017-06-07 15:02:16 UTC  

The carolina guys have been talking about getting shields...haha

2017-06-07 15:02:34 UTC  

So that may be possible

2017-06-07 15:42:53 UTC  

I already have one. Completely game

2017-06-07 15:57:07 UTC  

TWP has shields

2017-06-07 15:57:14 UTC  

Both TWP symbols and celtic crosses

2017-06-07 15:58:47 UTC  

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.

2017-06-07 16:04:02 UTC  

Shield wall sounds delightful

2017-06-07 16:32:28 UTC  

Did you guys build these shields you have or purchase them?

2017-06-07 16:50:43 UTC  

@MatthewHeimbach Those new shields my cohost sent you should come in handy again....

2017-06-07 17:09:13 UTC  

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.

2017-06-07 17:11:27 UTC  

Start with these. Go through all three parts. They have incredibly good tips that you won't get from studying riot shield tactics

2017-06-07 17:11:30 UTC  

I will construct a Huwite power shield

2017-06-07 17:12:57 UTC  

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

2017-06-07 17:36:48 UTC  

Check out the Demonstration_tactics tag. There have been a discussion about shields there.

2017-06-07 18:32:40 UTC  

@Heinz - MI Agree. We need the same for our Atl group

2017-06-07 19:00:51 UTC  

@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

2017-06-07 19:06:52 UTC  

@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

2017-06-07 22:16:26 UTC  

I know I'm not the only one thinking we need a large, synchonized dance routine.

2017-06-07 22:16:31 UTC  


2017-06-07 22:22:49 UTC  

^^ something the women SHOULD coordinate

2017-06-08 12:13:34 UTC  

@Andrew-- Have you met with any of our people in Atlanta?

2017-06-08 18:43:18 UTC  
2017-06-09 14:38:40 UTC  

@Scott Terry I have an embarrassing level of fondness for synchronized dance routines ­čśé

2017-06-11 01:03:35 UTC  

good thread

2017-06-11 23:17:24 UTC  

we need 4 lines of people just smoking blunts

2017-06-11 23:42:46 UTC  

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?

2017-06-14 22:02:28 UTC  

Blocking streets gives PD a reason to (((Shut it down!)))

2017-06-14 22:02:48 UTC  

If you march on the streets, get a permit first

2017-06-14 22:02:55 UTC  

I think the downtown mall would be better because that is where a lot of the mob incidences have been happening
