Shields Barricades and Words of Wisdom from Puerto Rico – Disruption Project (2020)

2011-Present, Blockade/Barricade, Date, Disruptive Spaces, Evasion, Tactics of Disruption, Urban Spaces

A love letter to US activists from Puerto Rico, giving advice on barricades, assemblies, and wresting the street from police control.

A barricade makes a lot of difference too. The police’s job is to remove protestors and our goal is to protest as long as possible. A barricade makes them think twice about charging the crowd. Their job is to shoot tear gas and then thousands of people run and it’s a stampede.
