If you’ve reached your tipping point and feel compelled to commit to a protest near you, it’s important to pack light and smart.
Keep your ID on you at all times, preferably in a closed pocket or money belt. If you have a regular doctor and/or any health conditions, write any pertinent information, such as contact numbers, list of allergies, and medication dosage or instructions on a small card to keep with your ID.
Slip a little cash and a telephone calling card in there as well, just in case you lose your cell. Don’t forget to write a contact number on you arm with a sharpie — if you get arrested and can make a call your belongings will have been confiscated.
