Messsage from Hand Banana in Charlottesville 2.0 #demonstration_tactics
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
@Dreiiaa (TWPVA) There's no doubt we should march through the Downtown Mall. My only wonder is whether we should keep it contained there
The downtown mall is public and the police wouldn't be able to remove us without violating our First Amendment rights
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
Is there any way the march through streets or mall can be an unofficial thing?
Like, oh the rally is over now everyone enjoy the mall and the bars
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.
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.
They really do have a disgusting culture
Yeah. What is with the black and white Aesthetics?
Larping as being members of the old Civil Rights Era.
Women are you trying to dictate tactics again?
There are women here?
lol. never know where to invite my grrl.
The Downtown Mall march will be unannounced to the public but we'll coordinate it among the leadership and let folks know prior to the event
Pink names = women
yeah i invited my gf and hopefully she does not have to work this day, requested it off and they asked why so she actually told them ... hopefully goes over ok.
i dont think bringing your 3d's to this is a good idea
IE will have a 3D squad.
if we're anticipating violence, id keep the woman you love away
^^ why would you bring women to an event where there will be known hostilities...?
1. We don't actually expect violence. That's just larping. Antifa only instigates when they have a massive numerical advantage, which they will not, here.
2. The womenfolk have their own cordon, far behind the men. They will be fine.
I think that Vanguard and the DRW have a similar view on 3Ds at inflammatory events
Bringing women to a protest/rally where we expect violence is fucking retarded.
Keep them in the rear.
How can you not expect violence when this was a major loss to them before and they have more time to plan now. They've been proven to be violent at large events
Also, even if you aren't expecting violence, you should prepare for it. Underestimating Antifa's will to escalate is retarded as well.
I'm trying to figure out how expecting violence is larping?
Is everything larping these days?
@Heinz - MI That's what I was saying. They will be the rear, as I understand.
Maybe I am mistaken.
In which case, someone else is tactically mistaken.
You realize the violence can happen anywhere around the event?
Like a parking lot or something before and after the event
Obviously. Travel in groups, always.
