Bustcards are an essential item to take with you on a protest.
They provide you with our key advice, information on stop and search and arrest, and the names and numbers of solicitors who can help you.
We often hear stories from people who weren’t carrying a bustcard as they didn’t expect to be arrested.
Always write the name of a solicitor and the number for the Protest Support Line (07946 541 511) on your arm. Don’t be caught out!

For resources for Scotland please see Scottish Activist & Legal Project.
All bustcards have the same information on your rights and the names and numbers of local lawyers who are experienced in protest cases.
