ANON STREET MEDIC PRIMER - Version 4


Note: THIS GUIDE IS NOT A REPLACEMENT FOR FIRST AID AND STREET MEDIC TRAINING. Use it as a reference, but do not mistake it as a substitute for hands-on experience. Seek out first aid and street medic training prior to engaging in protest action.

Street medics are not a new concept. Originally seen during the African-American Civil Rights Movement and the protests against the Vietnam War, street medics are volunteer activists who attend political actions equipped with the knowledge and inventory necessary to give medical aid to protesters and civilians in need. As social movements gain momentum and attract attention, they become increasingly likely to come up against those who would do serious violence to maintain the status quo, rather than allow meaningful change. Metropolitan police represent the most immediate physical threat to those who attempt to change the system, even via peaceful means.  A demand as simple as “please stop shooting unarmed citizens on public transit platforms” can and will be met with violent resistance from the state and its police force.
Into this volatile situation, where there exists a real threat of violence perpetrated against protest movements, come street medics. This guide hopes to serve as both a basic primer for those hoping to take a medical role in situations of civil unrest.

Quote

In Kiev, Pavel, 25, a masseur, who took part in Thursday’s battle equipped with body armour, balaclava, sledgehammer, walkie-talkie, flares, and a knife, said: “We live for today. We have no idea what will happen tomorrow. We need a better life for Ukraine. For our children. This is just not normal.”

antidelusions:

in fact autonomous and diverse affinity group mobilization for organized fighting or self defense is integral to our movements because we’re not just fighting the state, we’re fighting with the people not represented by any other vanguard or authoritarian type structure that will also use violence…

Anti-Morsi protesters chant slogans during a mass protest to support the army in Tahrir square in Cairo. Many of those Egyptians opposed to the ousted president say their admiration for the army has never wavered, and that any anger was always directed at the generals in charge. In the turbulent world of Egyptian politics since Hosni Mubarak, a former air force marshal, was toppled, the military is seen as an institution that offers stability Photograph: Mohamed Abd El Ghany/Reuters

Curating Syria’s revolutionary art

The revolution established a space for ingenuity that has astounded us, the Syrians, before even making its mark on the rest of the world, and we wonder, where had all this talent in satire, art, and innovation been?

The outburst of the uprising against oppression and tyranny brought on a surge of these remarkable, latent energies, the spontaneous and the organized, in a way never before seen in all of Syria’s years marked by repression and injustice. History relays similar experiences. This project aims to archive all the intellectual and artistic expressions in the age of revolution; it is writing, recording, and collecting stories of the Syrian people, and those experiences through which they have regained meaning of their social, political and cultural lives.

David Sirota of Salon has developed an excellent set of terms to speed along discussions about the contemporary American surveillance state. My own favorites include:

Least untruthful: A new legal doctrine that allows an executive branch official to issue a deliberate, calculated lie to…

Or a new system entirely
