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

Heinz - MI 2017-06-07 17:09:13

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.

Heinz - MI 2017-06-07 17:11:27

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

JohnStrasser 2017-06-07 17:11:30

I will construct a Huwite power shield

Heinz - MI 2017-06-07 17:12:57

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

The Huwhyte Ulf - VA 2017-06-07 17:36:48

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

Albrecht von Wallenstein 2017-06-07 18:32:40

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

Andrew-- 2017-06-07 19:00:51

@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

Charlemagne MD 2017-06-07 19:06:52

@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.

Americana - MD 2017-06-07 22:22:49

^^ something the women SHOULD coordinate

Albrecht von Wallenstein 2017-06-08 12:13:34

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

Andrew-- 2017-06-08 18:43:18

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

ManWithTheHand 2017-06-11 01:03:35

good thread

Ignis Faatus 2017-06-11 23:17:24

we need 4 lines of people just smoking blunts

ManWithTheHand 2017-06-11 23:42:46

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?

Jack "Ajax" Richardson 2017-06-14 22:02:28

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

Hand Banana 2017-06-14 22:02:48

If you march on the streets, get a permit first

Dreiiaa (TWPVA) 2017-06-14 22:02:55

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

Der Seeteufel - SD 2017-06-14 22:03:56

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

MadDimension 2017-06-14 22:04:27

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

MadDimension 2017-06-14 22:05:09

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

MadDimension 2017-06-14 22:05:38

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

MadDimension 2017-06-14 22:06:29

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

Skull 2017-06-14 22:28:33

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

Skull 2017-06-14 22:28:54

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

oliverhyperborea 2017-06-14 23:16:22

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.

PrimitveXaoc 2017-06-14 23:30:11

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.
