REPUBLICAN CONVENTION THREAT: Black Lives Matter Organizer Posts Guide to RIOTWEAR… In Arabic
Ashley Yates, a Black Lives Matter protest organizer, has posted a guide to riotwear on Twitter.
The guide includes what rioters should wear and have, as well as instructions for thwarting police attempts at apprehending them.
The post suggests rioters bring:
- Sweatshirt or leather jacket with a hood. This helps shield your face from teargas.
- Spray paint so that if the authorities attack us, we can spray paint the visors of their helmets and the windshields of their armored trucks, blocking their vision and hindering their movement.
- Protective glasses. (Can be bought at any metalworking or paint shop.)
- The lid of the pot. You can use this shield when the state security beats you or shoots rubber bullets.
- Scarf to protect your mouth and lungs from teargas.
- Thick rubber gloves in order to protect your hands from the heat of teargas containers.
- Shoes that make it easy to run and move quickly.
The post also suggests rioters keep a rose on them, “so we can show that we can do as we ought to and join together in the most peaceful way possible.”
For uncertain reasons, the guide was posted in both English and Arabic.
“The most peaceful way possible,” sounds less than civil, both in this context and considering Yates’ history of inciting destructive rioting.

[…] “We’re going to take our anger out on the people who have failed us, and if they are prepared to deal with that, then let them have at it,” said Yates. Poe said that while people in America often expected “casual revolution”, Ferguson may be “the moment when we can’t do that.”
BreitBart calls Yates an “advocate for violence,” reporting:
Yates learned organizing when she was the political chair of the Legion of Black Collegians at the University of Missouri Columbia; the group who was behind last year’s campus uprising there. Yates was not with the group at the time of that protest, however.
According to BreitBart, Yates posted her riotwear guide just after reposting a piece from Cleveland.com about the city buying riot control gear in preparation for the Republican
