Most of us have seen the G20 protest videos. We have seen the techniques the riot control police are using, such as the little stomp shuffle they do. Well, I found a way to turn that into a positive thing.

When they start doing the little line stomp, all of the protesters should then line up in front of them, facing the same direction as the cops, and mimic the same stomp, except maybe add a clap between each stomp and a chant for a more cheerful sound. Though this does effectively "stop the protest" in the area we were protesting, we instead get a nice march going as far as you can lead them. Heck, just lead them around the block in circles till LRAD shows up. We should come up with a universal chant that we should spread so all protests do the same thing to "fight back" peacefully.

You can dance if you want to...

Safety Dance? A kind of ironic protest?

EDIT: Or how awesome would it be to perform thriller in front of the cops in unison. Flash mobs would be a strange but effective way of protesting.

OP, what a brilliant idea! As a chant, I'd suggest,
"Once uh pon a time...
Demonstration was no crime!"
Love the dance idea too. With music played into bullhorns... How about The Timewarp?

Another thing to consider is perhaps sitting down when you see some idiots come in and start thrashing things just because they can hide among you. These ones are those that get things shut down in short order and fast!
If you see them start to thrash things sit your butts down so the police can SEE who THEY are and remove "them" instead of ALL OF YOU.


As someone who knows police and others the main thing that causes them to STOP a protest are idiots like that ruining everyones chance to be peacefully heard! You would be pleasently surprised to hear how many of them would just love to let you continue as long as it stays peaceful they will NOT interfere. Even more of them agree with a lot of what is being said, but if violence or damage to public property breaks out they have to step in and put a stop to it. IF they can't find WHO is doing it you all go.

:sorry if I am miss spelling not doing so well the past few days:

It was peaceful, then the stomping started. They took it up a notch, not us. So then we just join it with them and turn our protest into a full blown march.



And I have one more idea. Whether you have a weapon or not, I say bring an instrument. That way, if we all march, we can jam at the same time. If the LRAD shows up, we might be able to make a whimper. And if the they attack us, our instruments may have to be used as weapons. So make sure you bring the cheaper brands.
