Packing for a day of protest!
Things to take to a protest / demo:
- Coat / waterproofs
- Hat and gloves NO scarf (if it gets caught it could hurt you)
- Comfy shoes (closed toe)
- Food / drink
- Sun cream
- Notebook / pen
- Phone – you may wish to take a basic one without masses of personal data/contacts on it!
- Small amount of money – you don’t need masses of cards (ID) on you!
- Just in case, some people write their solicitors and the Green and Black Cross phone numbers on their arm in Sharpie – it’s unlikely you’ll lose your arm!
- Bust card details
- Placard / banner
- Printed Incident Report
NB: do not take anything sharp, suspicious items, permanent pen (you could be accused of vandalism/criminal damage) or items of value
