With the actions against the Inauguration of Donald Trump coming up this week, we have prepared a print-ready handout to be distributed at demonstrations all around the United States. Here it is in three versions, followed by an array of materials about proper dress and security in public order situations. Good luck, everyone, and stay safe.

The Problem

…is that anyone could wield so much power in the first place. A man like Donald Trump could never be so dangerous if government and the market didn’t concentrate power in the hands of a ruling class.

Putting another party in power won’t fix this. All the faith invested in Obama’s promises of Hope and Change just legitimized the government long enough for a more ruthless tyrant to take the reins. All the taxes paid by hopeful citizens just put more bullets in the guns of the police that will go on profiling, imprisoning, deporting, and murdering people under Donald Trump.

We have to stop ceding our strength to these institutions. Instead, let’s build networks to meet our needs directly and defend ourselves against everyone who wants to rule us. The only way to freedom and equality is through self-determination, mutual aid, and collective resistance.

Proper Attire

nice, thanks

Why can't I see the poster?

Make anarchy great again... FUCK THE REST.

Let Trump and his false opposition eat each other out, and work to build a world without States, despots and especially despotisms.

had been elected, if this poster would have been quite so hyperbolic.

Is quite befitting the orange-one. Perhaps a toothbrush mustache consisting of smeared cocaine should have been incorporated as well.

Defined among more congruent Brazilian/South African lines.

To keep Trump firmly in context, let's not forget the eight straight years of slaughter and war under the Obomba Administration, bombing the fuck out of no fewer than six different countries at the same time at certain points. Let's not forget the unprecedented surveillance of the people under the Obomba Administration. And let's not forget that it was under the Obomba Administration that energy weapons were first used against the domestic protesting population. Long Range Acoustic Devices (LRADs) were used by police at the G20 meetings in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in September 2009. They were then rolled out in Toronto at the G20 meetings in June 2010. They were used against the protesters in Ferguson in 2014. And they will be used at the Trump Inauguration, as well. Prior to the Pittsburgh G20 in 2009, LRADs were only used in times of war.

LRADs can deafen a person, cause permanent inner ear damage or blindness, stop a pacemaker, or cause an aneurism.

Protesters should be aware of the new dangers posed by energy weapons and of this escalation of militarized policing.

Protest has become a Western cultural icon, a social venting mechanism which is now fetishized by the conservative left. It achieves nothing in this day and age, I thought most folk had gradually come around to this in the last 5 years?
