Defensive Tactics
05 Oct 2000
If they can't see they can't fight.
After seeing the footage of Seattle and watching the riot squad in Boston. I thought an effective LAST DITCH EFFORT if things get out of control. Paintballs. Thrown or crushed on goggles or faceplates would effectivly blind the police momentarily. Seconds count when you're trying not to get a plastic loop around you wrists.

eggs will also work well
water balloons
05 Oct 2000
At night, water balloons seem like they would be effective. get the cops all wet and they become uncomfortable and cold. maybe put some LSD in the water, get them all tripping ;) they'll want to just go home and leave us alone after that.
greaseguns
05 Oct 2000
greaseguns are nice toys. They operate like caulk guns, but spray automotive grease up to 12 feet if pumped hard.

Paintballs do work if thrown hard enough - but only if thrown on hard surfaces.

If you want close-quarter protection, get a spraybottle with a liquid of choice or spraypaint.

You should look up Ya Basta in italy for well armoured defense/offence in DA protests.
