Free Speech Rally in Berkeley, Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park, Saturday, 17. April 2032

FREE SPEECH RALLYMartin Luther King, Jr. ParkBerkeley, CaliforniaThursday, April 27 at 2 PMJoin us for an afternoon of FREE SPEECH in America.All patriots welcome!Please send to your like-minded friends!Please help support our efforts to protect everyone’s free speech rights and to protect the attendees as they come to the event. We call on you to once again join us in defense of the Constitution we all swore an oath to defend.
Free speech is not really free. It comes at the price of eternal vigilance. We who have the training and experience have the duty to step up and lead by example, and help provide competent leadership and guidance to all the patriots who will once again flood to the banner of free speech in its defense.BRING YOUR FRIENDS!
You will need to be wearing a helmet, googles to protect your eyes against pepper spray and thrown objects, and gloves and protective clothing and gear. See the below list for more details on recommended gear.Unless you have the ability to legally carry concealed in CA, and wherever she ends up speaking, such as on UC Berkeley, we strongly advise against attempting to do so. Consider this an unarmed (no firearms) detail except possibly for our retired cops, who can carry concealed under LEOSA. Any questions, please ask.GEAR WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU BRING IF AT ALL POSSIBLEHead protection. A bike helmet, a rock climbing helmet, a PASGAT or MICH helmet, etc. Whatever you want on your head all day. Black is the preferred color if you have it, but if not, bring what you have. You can expect sticks, clubs, frozen soda cans, rocks, bricks, and M-80 firecrackers from the bad guys. A visor on the helmet is best of all, with ballistic goggles underneath. We only have 15 actual police riot helmets, so bring your own if you have one.Eye protection. Googles that will stay on your **** and will prevent smoke, fluids, and caustic chemicals from getting to your eyes. If they can seal against your skin and provide a tight seal, all the better. Treat them with anti-fog spray if you can or get anti-fog lenses. ballistic lenses are best.Ear protection. Some earplugs stashed in a pocket or Peltors if you have them. The bad guys like to use bullhorns and airhorns at close range as well as M-80 firecrackers, which are VERY loud.Hand protection. Some protective gloves that will protect against impact and cutting, and also fire resistant. Again, expect poles, hard thrown objects, m-80 firecrackers, and possible incendiary devices and burning objects. Knuckle protection is nice to have too, in case you need to go hands on.SOFT BODY ARMOR. If you have it, wear it under your clothes. HARD BODY ARMOR. If you have it, bring it. Will help against blunt trauma and thrown objects too, or against body punches. Be prepared to keep it in a backpack and out of sight if a lower profile is more warranted.Groin cup. An athletic cup is highly recommended. There were some injuries last time from possible bad guy M-80s or similar. That hurts, and so do kicks and punches there. Wear a cup.N-95 masks or similar to protect against pepper spray in the air. Kerchief or Shemagh around your neck that can be used to protect your **** and neck. A good idea regardless of whatever else you do.Long sleeve shirt/sweatshirt. Preferably NOT nylon, since if it catches fire it will stick to your skin. A leather jacket is best, but wool, cotton, Nomex or some other fire retardant material is good. Good boots/shoes. Steel toe may help, but whatever you are comfortable in for a long time on your feet.IFAK (Individual First Aid Kit). Tourniquet, quick clot, pressure bandage, eye wash, etc. We will have an EMT on the ground with us, who will bring eye wash but if you want to bring some too, by all means do so.Boo-boo kit. Bandaids, Advil, Alleve, etc and any meds you need. Sun screen, etc.Water. A Camelback or other hydration system so you can take a drink even while your hands are full, if you got it, or whatever else you think best. RADIO. A FRS/GMRS radio. A dual band HAM radio, such as one of the cheap Boefengs, can work too since it has it all. A long antenna if you have it.A LOUD whistle. For signaling and calling for aid.Fire extinguisher. If you have it, bring it. We need at least two dedicated fire-fighters this time. If you have Nomex gloves, bring them.Small 2.5 ounce pepper spray. A food bar or two or snickers bar to keep your energy/blood sugar up if you need that. Ditto for energy drinks. Whatever you need to keep going.A map of the area around the venue. a flashlight. Brighter the better just in case things go on into the night or in case you end up indoors in a dark room. You never know. Let us know if there is anything we missed that you think needs to be included.If you are missing something on this list, don't let that keep you from coming. Show up and we will make do. We will get you outfitted one way or another.We hope the presence of Club USA will pressure the Berkeley PD and UC Berkeley police into doing their duty. And if so, we will gladly stand down and just enjoy ourselves (unless we have to come to the rescue of the UC Berkeley PD!). We sincerely hope it is a peaceful day.
