Protestors – Know Your Police Beats

When planning a protest or direct action, organizers should understand what their movement’s relation to space is. Stand like a rock or “be water?” Some movements may need to occupy specific areas, while others may be able to move about a city, across multiple jurisdictions, to escape arrest or police responses. Tactics should be considered based on the movement’s relationship with space.

Activists that find themselves in situations that require them to ‘stand like a rock’ should be aware that they face more potential of police violence than those who can move about freely and carry on protests in multiple locations.
