If you are new to protesting this is what you will need:
- Sign(s) (as clear and as large as possible);
Tip: If you plan to use signs at a legislative body in the future you may want to consider a waterproof fabric or plastic sign with no wood or projectiles that could be construed as a weapon)
- Comfortable shoes and dress for the weather;
- Know your topic- (in case the media would like to speak with you);
- Bring a friend (or a few)
- Expect opposition (they can be unfriendly, as with Seattle’s anarchist’s)
- Law Enforcement has been very gracious to both sides of the issue as long as you respect local permits and city/private boundaries.
- Bull horn to get your point across
- Tape recorder/video cam
- No NAU T- shirt
- Bring water and food (portable-backpack)
