Protest tips from an Anarchist Jurisdiction
Last week, Seattle hit 150 days of protests. I've been on the ground for a whole lot of that.
After the election tomorrow, I'm guessing a number of y'all are gonna be back out in the streets again.
Here's some stuff that's been important in the last few months, some of which I hadn't seen discussed as much in "protest 101" type posts [thread]:
Periodic reminder that boundaries are normal and important and /it is okay to have them./
It is okay to say no.
It is okay to not open up about the details of your life.
It is okay to be evasive when asked about the details of your life.
It doesn't make you bad.
It doesn't mean you're Hiding Something™.
It means you have healthy boundaries.
...we're still working on learning all this.
