4. During the Action
Please keep in touch with us if arrests occur.
Make sure everybody has a bustcard. Write the phone numbers of GBC, and a good solicitor, on your arms. Our protest support line is available 24/7 for any on-the-day queries. It is really helpful if you keep us updated with significant events on the ground e.g. changes of location, arrests, or police brutality.
Do not pass on messages that you hear from police officers – this is doing the police’s work for them and you could make people more vulnerable to certain charges.
If we have sent out legal observers, they will be distributing bustcards, monitoring police and recording arrests.
We may tweet relevant legal advice – please re-tweet to your followers.
