Tactics (english)

We need better unarrest tactics. Here's one idea, please add your own...
We need better unarrest tactics.

Here's the tools we need: Spray paint, pepper spray, lots of people

Here's what we do:

When the cops single someone out, we surround them. Spray-paint their face plates. This will force them to lift the plates because otherwise they won't be able to see.

A quick squirt of pepper spray and that officer is out for the count.

Use only sparingly to unarrest our comrads, and all will go well.

For larger police lines, I recomment a much larger, paint-sprayer (for industrial home-use) on a dolly.

It is much harder for them to harm us if they can't see us. And if they feel that they must stay inside a vehicle to maintain safety and visibility, they are less mobile.

Plus, the image of a cop car or a bus or a tank running someone over has much more of an impact that a cop striking someone one-on-one with a baton.

If we force them to use such tactics, people will see the monster that they are much quicker.

Note: i am not advocating beating, hitting, stabbing, or shooting officers of the law. I am merely offering two non-lethal methods of annoyance and dispersal.

If you are planning on using the paint-and-spray tactic cited above, be sure to have proper protection yourself, keep your identity well guarded, and fade quickly back into the crowd after a brief foray with the enemy. It is recommended that you have a change of clothes to further impede identification later by the police.

Why? (english)
20 Feb 2003
Why unarrest?

Because every arrest in a potential fine funding the continuation of the (ill)legal establishment.

Because every arrest binds one more righteous individual in the elaborate and time-consuming web of the (in)justice system.

Because every arrest acts to legitimize their power and illegitimize our legal right of assembly.

Because they are supposed to be "serving and protecting" us, the people, not beating us up and hauling us off to jail to serve someone else's interests.

And maybe, just maybe, they deserve a taste of their own medicine too....
