This is a guest post from Jay Emerson, founder of the New York Pirate Party and a long time political activist.
With uprisings happening all over the U.S. lately you might be wondering what to do when the shit hits the fan. Maybe you were thinking of going to a protest in your area to fight against some form of oppression or another, but don’t know what to wear or what to bring to the party, or even what to expect. These activist fashion and culture guides will help you navigate the complex world of “anti-fascist” chic!
Now i’m not going to go over everything because a good portion of pirates already know what to do. What I hope to give is tips and tricks to stuff you already know.
First, you need to get some protest threads and a backpack full of helpful items. Definitely a good read: How to gear up for the protest
Ok so you’re dressed, got your gear ready, and are about to embark to your local resistance area.
Before you do that, something I learned throughout years of activism was to bring a second set of clothing, but make it nice clothing. Business casual. Polo shirt and khakis or something.
