How to protest Peacefully & Effectively in a Dictatorship

FromRome.Info publishes here extracts and summaries from a Handbook on how to protest effectively and peacefully under a dictatorship.

THIS IS A REPRINT FROM FEB. 20, 2021

Goals

Every protest must have a just and honest goal, which is of urgent necessity, so as to mobilize the greatest number of citizens. This is necessary because to get the government to listen they will only respond to numbers. And to protect the people from possible abuse, the more that protest the more all will be protected by one another.

Organization

But ideals do not win victory without organization. A protest must be organized, otherwise the propaganda of the government and the use of intimidation and force by police who support the regime, will effectively break up or disorganize the protest, in such a way as to make it ineffective or promote the propaganda of the government, in saying that the protesters were violent or out of control.

The preparation of the protest should include a diversification of forces. This is because to manage a protest well, different persons need to be assigned to different tasks.

For example, there should be those tasked with recording the event on camera. There should be experts in law and jurisprudence on hand to negotiate with government forces or defend protestors and see that their rights not be offended. Persons with status in the community as leaders should be placed in prominent places. Veterans of the Military and Police should wear their uniforms and be on hand to talk down the government forces and even convince them to join in the protest, or mutiny if necessary. Religious leaders should be on hand to encourage everyone to be virtuous and peaceful, and to deflate conflict and mediate between government forces and the people. Finally, some should be tasked with internal communications and internal security, so that, just as the government might want to infiltrate provocateurs, so the protestors can have agents on had to identify such individuals and expel them from the protest, if not execute a citizens’ arrest on them for acts of violence.

Right is shown in Peaceful Methods

The people show that justice and right is on their side when they adopt peaceful methods of protest, whenever possible. This will win everyone over to the side of justice and right, because in general the average person presumes that the use of violence is a sign of bad will. Violence should never be used except in self defense, and then only proportionately and as a last resort.

Having organized forces as mentioned above, conflict and obstacles are more easily avoided between the protestors and the government forces. And this is the highest objective of a peaceful protest in regard to how the protest is managed from within.

Justice does not mean Naiveté

That one’s cause is just, however, does not mean that one should organize a protest on the basis of presuming that everyone, including government forces, is going to be honest and have good will and want to avoid conflict. Dictatorships are notorious for infiltrating provocateurs into protests so that it appears that the protestors are in the wrong and violent, when it is in fact government agents hidden among them who start the violence.

The Necessity of Security

Thus, security is the use of intelligent and preventive methods to avoid violence and conflict, infiltration and subversion.  Even the most honest and just protest by the most honest and just persons, has the right to organize its own internal and external security.

Internally, the meetings which plan the protest should be done privately in undisclosed places, and no one who attends should bring any electronic device which can be traced by the government. At the same time, all who do attend should agree to be searched for wires and anything which might indicate they are a government agent.

This means also when the protest starts, the internal security forces of the protestors need to work to identify government agents among the crowds and stop and question individuals and ask to see such proofs as they are not government agents.

Most government agents will be single males. Or single women. Anyone suspicious should be asked by the security forces of the protestors to show their identification and if police identifications or wires are found, to exclude such persons from the protest and immediately message the security forces and communication personnel of the protestors their pictures and locations so as to black list them from the protest during the whole time of the protest. The easiest way to identify a government agent is to ask where he works and call his employer to verify it, and or better call a local business nearby, at random, to verify the identity of the employer or the knowledge of the alleged worker of the area around the work place.

The most important protest leaders should be flanked at all times by volunteers who are trained in self defense and military or police tactics, so as to prevent the leadership from being injured or captured by government forces. Escape routes and safe houses in the city and neighboring regions or nations should be prepared beforehand.

Managing the Protest

One should expect that every dictatorship will plan ahead to disrupt the protest before it forms, and thus, one must plan ahead to assemble the protestors in such a way as to prevent the objectives of the government.

For this purpose it is better if most of the protestors not carry devices which can be used to tract them, so that their groupings cannot be remotely detected by the government in such a way as to bring police forces against them in strategic places.

Protestors should dress normally and all have a legitimate reason for being outside in the city doing what is normally done on such a day. That way the government, who is not able to stop the life of the city, will not be able to prevent the arrival of protestors to the locations where the protest will take place.

They should avoid arriving along streets which can be easily blocked and should be organized to arrive by every means so as to prevent the government from stopping up all points of access. In case of the forceful control by the government of one place of the city, the place of protest should be moved instantly to another.

And for this reason, it is useful if the protest is managed by a cloud of mutually equivalent control centers, so that if any go off line or are overwhelmed by government forces, the other centers can continue with communication to the protestors on the ground. Methods of communication should be used which are spontaneous and not restricted to a single platform or method, so as to prevent the government from blacking out news or control of the event.

Messaging

Getting out the message for the protest and during the protest is just as important as having a protest. Speakers need to prepare what they are going to say. Dynamic individuals who inspire the crowds of protestors need to be flanked by more organized speakers who can explain when explanations are needed or intervene with important information or clarification. The government will use psychology to attempt to disrupt, and so those who are able to remain cool in times of violence or mayhem are best suited to be speakers or assistants to the leaders of the protest.

Of course, protestors are effective if they carry signs or symbols, but whether they should or not carry such things depends on the level of civil liberties in the nation in which they protest. The more repressive the government the less this should be done. And indeed, in such cases masks can legitimately be worn to prevent persecution by the police during or afterwards from facial recognition.

Diplomacy

One of the important parts of a successful public protest on a large scale will be having citizens who are not in the protest stationed at every police and military station in the area and ready to dissuade government forces before and during the event from mobilizing. This can be done most effectively by having relatives of the police or military personnel there to plead with their own family members, and relatives of the officers even better.

Personnel who understand the just and peaceful goals of the protest and who are sufficiently educated should be assigned to represent the protestors at all the local embassies of foreign powers in the city, to encourage them to urge the dictatorship to allow the protest to go on and to assure them of the peaceful motives of the protestors. This is also necessary to prevent a response by foreign powers who might be asked by the dictatorship to look the other way or to provide military forces to be used against the people. Those great powers who have military basis in the region should be especially contacted at the start of the protest and urged not to intervene except on the side of the people.. And if any foreign power does urge the government to suppress the protest or allow it to go forward this information needs to be communicated rapidly to the protest leaders and to all the members of the protest and all the citizens of the country so that everyone knows what is really going on and who is friendly and who is not friendly.

  1. Egypt several years ago, 18 million protesting on the streets… What happened ? A military leadership and life became worse. IT DOESNT WORK !!!

  2. I would like to make several statements:
    1) The SARS-CoV-2 exists and is DEADLY. (Spike protein
    has some parts of the original SARS-1, of HIV-AIDS), and
    many other strange unusual proteins, as published by a
    team from India in the ARXIV website in 2020 and furtherly explained by the Nobel prize winner Luc Montaigner…
    1.1) In November 2020 it killed my father’s friend, the
    bishop of Città Ducale MARCO DINO BROGI (O.F.M).
    1.2) In May 17th it killed my uncle Remo Rossi (but that
    was maybe a re-infection in a patient that had several
    cerebral strokes).
    1.3) In May 27th it killed in Maracaibo, Venezuela my cousin
    Vanessa Rossi (40 y.o.), that was on therapy with Ivermectine.
    ALL THIS PERSONS WERE NOT VACCINATED.

    I’m NOT against “true vaccines”, as are those made with
    the natural virus killed with heat and gamma rays
    (like Sinovac-CoronaVac) or fabricated with innovative chimera-virus (like JANSSEN or SPUTNIK that are a
    modified Adenovirus, unable to replicate, with the
    Spike protein added to the surface. After I.M. injection
    they are shown as an “usual virus”, an hostile particle
    that must be neutralized by B-cells antibodies and T-cells,
    and seems to be only a slight risk of an autoimmune
    reaction, something that can be feared if OUR CELLS
    are ORDERED TO PRODUCE THE FOREIGN SPIKE
    PROTEIN (which by the way has been shown as genotoxic
    because it enter cell nucleus and interfere with DNA-repair).

    We should protest against several things:
    1) Lack of a national program in order to enforce effective
    EARLY HOME THERAPY, as discovered by the “Protocollo Remuzzi” of the “Mario Negri Instituto di Farmacologia” in Milan…
    1.1) NIMESULIDE (AULIN or MESULID)*
    (In other countries : MEFENAMIC ACID = TRUMEF )
    1.2) ASPIRIN (or Ascriptin);
    1.3) ZINC; 1.4) Clarithromycin or Azithromycin.
    1.5) TELMISARTAN (a not dangerous anti-hypertensive drug)
    1.6) Cortisone only after the 7th day (under strict medical surveillance)
    1.7) HEPARINE (belly injections, also under strict medical surveillance)

    2) LACK of AIR-FILTERS and ULTRAVIOLET LAMPS….
    2.1) In schoolrooms, in building elevators, inside buses,
    trains, airplanes, bathrooms.
    2.2) Lack of the free distribution of FP-2 masks to the
    population. Lack of advice of HOW TO CREATE A SELF-
    MADE VACCINE … “put the mask over the home heater”
    or “put the mask inside an oven or inside a pan with some
    boiling water”.
    2.3) Lack of advice about the need of GLOVES, and the
    possibility of ORO-FECAL transmission (BACTERIA
    containing the VIRUS), as discovered by CARLO BROGNA
    of the CRANIOMED group in AVELLINO.

    3) LACK of a “TRADITIONAL” or “USUAL” VACCINE…
    3.1. Made with an inactivated virus (like those for FLU)
    3.2. Made with genetic engineering (like NOVAVAX ? )
    as those made in modified molds for B-HEPATITIS,
    that is known as ENGERIX-B.

    4) LACK of a TRUTHFUL and HONEST INFORMATION
    about the origins of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
    4.1. Why it appears at WUHAN (near the Experimental Virus and Bacterial Laboratory)
    4.2. Why Wuhan was not IMEDIATLY ISOLATED from
    the World (all the flights from Wuhan to the rest of China
    were stopped, but there were still people coming to Italy
    and Germany).
    4.3. What is the role of ANTHONY FAUCI in the “GAIN
    of FUCTION” experimental research that was already
    denounced in 2015, by the Italian RAI-3 TV program
    LEONARDO.

    5) STOP BUYING ANYTHING FROM MICROSOFT and
    BILL GATES.

    1. Have your ever reflected on the fact that you think covid killed your friends and relatives because the doctors told you that was their cause of death. But after 24 months, do you still believe the doctors?

      1. The only contact with a possible source of infection,
        other than persons, food, etc…
        Was with the SWAB. (I have done ZERO swabs in my life)
        I studied medicine in the Catholic University of Rome,
        one of my friends and “compagni di studi” e di
        “uscite del fine settimana” was Roberto Burioni.
        I did not finished because I got very ill… and Burioni
        helped in the diagnosis of Lyme Disease in my mother
        (was the first case in Italy with a cultivation of the
        Borrelia Burgdorferi from the blood in a person).
        After cultivation, Burioni did a full brake, He was
        absolutly NOT interested in antibiotic therapy.
        I had to review all the literature present at the time
        (in 1987), and it was scarce, but I found that the
        ROCHEPHIN from the Swiss manufacturer ROCHE,
        could be helpful, with really big doses and a long
        therapy.
        Several years ago, I greeted R. Burioni, and I wished
        Him a Nobel Prize because He had discovered in
        a patient a PROTEIN THAT BLOCKS ALL TYPES
        OF FLU. And He was developing it with his research
        laboratory POMONA.
        Then I quarreled with R. Burioni because I made the
        simple observation that the city of OLD LYME in
        Connecticut is only 20 miles far from PLUM ISLAND,
        a laboratory near MONTAUK in Long Island (NY),
        were is rumored that there is a research about Patogen
        Germs, transmission of diseases from animals to men, etc.
        It is mentioned by the actor Anthony Hopskins in the film “The Silence of The Lambs” … as ANTHRAX ISLAND.
        He took away from Me his friendship.

        So please don’t say “don’t trust the doctors”.
        There are REAL MEDICAL DRs. like SILVANA MARI,
        like DE DONNO (killed); like MASSIMO CITRO; like
        REMUZZI; like CARLO BROGNA; like ROBERT MALONE (inventor of mRNA “vaccines”, that says should be reserved only to over 50’s and used with great caution and the need to be followed; like KARI MULLIS (inventor of the Protein Chain Reaction of DNA, used in the swans) and many others.

        Average doctors are being misinformed, menaced, killed.

        The HEAD of MINISTERO della SALUTE is SPERANZA…
        a “political scientist”… and I must say that his head is
        plenty of rotten things.

        G.R.
