. Update 7/17
we have got all the protective gear we need thanks to you guys. But with all that’s going on someone stole our medical cart/trolly. This was our mule the carried milk/water and other supplies. I’m gonna order a new cart and build a shelf/box system on it with our supplies and a mobile sink,lights and everything so we can have a mobile base of operations
For the last week I have been down at the Sacramento protests. I went down the first day with a little medical equipment. Mainly heatstroke/first aid/ friendly stuff. After the first night and seeing the cops fire upon peaceful protestors I knew something had to change. I returned the next day with armor and heavy trauma gear. The streets erupted into a warzone. I mean that in every sense of the word. For a week now I have been dragging people out of the frontline and been working with some of the most courageous medics/nurses/doctors I have ever seen. They all run to where people are running from. The first night a legal observer got shot in the face and then while we were trying to treat him the police threw teargas and shot a volley of rubber bullets at the medical team who were clearly marked.
I never thought I would wear armor to an American protest.
I never thought that that would be the best descision I had ever made.
We now have raised money for helmets and some protective gear. What we have used for now is cheap tobaggon sleds as improve shields. Bandannas for tear gas. It’s crazy. Anyways people. I just wanted you to know that in the midst of this chaos. There are people trying to help. The protestors have been peaceful. The cops have been out of order. Every night me and the medic team stay out till the last person gets home.
Times are a changing. Things are not looking good. If you can’t get out and protest. Donate to Norcal resist. Currently there is a zero dollar bail in California because of covid. This is exempted for protestors who are being held at 100/250k$ bails. Also one of the medics got arrested and charged with possession of a deadly weapon for having trauma shears. If you can’t get out and protest. Or do not want to donate to Norcal resist you can shoot me some cash. I spend 25/30$ a day in gas to drive down. Helmets are 25/30$ a piece. We raised 600$ to get 30 helmets. Anyways. Ask any questions. I’m gonna post a news article and a few pics. Keep y’all heads up. It’s gonna be a bumpy. Ride.
