@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.

2017-06-07 17:13:31 UTC  

Absolutely

2017-06-07 17:18:28 UTC  

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

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

2017-06-07 22:16:31 UTC  

am-I-right?!

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

2017-06-14 22:03:56 UTC  

The mall. The photos will be better if they have landmarks in the background.

2017-06-14 22:04:27 UTC  

It will get very expensive very fast if we start asking to close down streets in advance. We'd have to pay off duty police officers

2017-06-14 22:05:09 UTC  

@Dreiiaa (TWPVA) There's no doubt we should march through the Downtown Mall. My only wonder is whether we should keep it contained there

2017-06-14 22:05:38 UTC  

The downtown mall is public and the police wouldn't be able to remove us without violating our First Amendment rights

2017-06-14 22:06:29 UTC  

Decision: For now we will not plan to march through the street and block traffic. But if Antifa does we should be able to confront them about it

2017-06-14 22:28:33 UTC  

Is there any way the march through streets or mall can be an unofficial thing?

2017-06-14 22:28:54 UTC  

Like, oh the rally is over now everyone enjoy the mall and the bars

2017-06-14 23:16:22 UTC  

We marched last time with no permits in 2 rows down the sidewalk with runners in safety vests stopping traffic long enough for us to cross.

2017-06-14 23:30:11 UTC  

Let's not street march and look like assholes. Sidewalks is one thing, but straight through the streets like they did a few weeks ago for the 'community defense' March was awful (Antifa)

These fools had babies and children in the streets dragging banners over cars blocking their view and such. Too bad the civilians didn't just make new speed bumps for some of these scum.
