Preparation or Self defense tactics in a civic disobedience (protest) situation?

Asked by lifeflame (5805 points ) March 14th, 2011

Recently, I’ve become increasingly involved in situations of civic disobedience, where there will be confrontations with the police.

I’m specifically looking for links to comprehensive online resources – (websites, manuals) of things to be aware of in a protest situations.

But any wisdom gleaned from experience is also welcome. It can be anything; from dressing safely; to what to do when hit by pepper spray; to legal consequences; documentation, dealing with mainstream media, etc, etc…

I’d like to be as prepared as possible before entering the fray….
