    While perusing elsewhere I noticed a lot of my more colourful friends (pro Palestinian, anti state forces, Che Guevara t shirt wearing, daily mail reading types) Bitching about their support for Arab spring and the Turkish protesters?
    They also mentioned G8 and the need to protest against the capitalists.
    What's needed is some advice on gasmasks and headgear. These aren't the sort to have a mark 6 or a stadium 8 sitting around and certainly won't be willing to dip the shemagh in a bucket of mixed pee.

  4. In all seriousness, having more than a passing interest in resis can attract police attention.

    I figured that but I just don't want to see them letting the side down. Running about Fermanagh protesting and thinking its quite ok to run about with loaves of bread or plastic bottles taped to their head.
    Whoever's supplying the protesters in Istanbul must be making a fortune.

  6. I reckon they'll be running about Tyrone meself. Close as anyone's going to get.
     
  7. Tell them the use of CS isn't a tactical option for PO in NI and gas masks don't stop water cannon, impact rounds or batons so they can save their money for more Che t-shirts.
     
  8. Will tear gas work in the most piss wet through environment in Europe?

  12. What I really want to see is - if water cannon get the go-ahead for mainland UK - is a riot in Wales, and have plod try to put it down using a water cannon.


    Would be interesting to see if anyone notices.
     
  13. Of course they will... The water is warm for a start.

  14. And a bit of soap in there as well wouldn't hurt
