As the final weekend before the inauguration is upon us, DC Anarchist
Resistance wishes to remind and inform participants in the weeks coming
activities of new developments and several pieces of important information.
Change in meeting point for Anarchist March
First off, the gathering point for the contingent has changed
locations from Franklin Square Park to Logan Circle, we'll gather on
the east side of 13th between Rhode Island and P St. NW. The
location was changed after news was received that Franklin Sq. Park
was to be used as a police staging area. The gathering time remains
the same, 12:30 pm.

More information about state security planning, including road
closings, security checkpoints, and law enforcement estimates can be
found at the following websites:
Inauguration Shutdown Of Downtown Extensive (Washington Post)
A High Level of Alert for the Inauguration (New York Times)

Presently, throngs of protestors have begun their descent upon
Washington DC, as well as the thousands of police, federal agents,
and military personnel. Because of this, there are many precautions
that all careful anarchists should heed before, during, and after
the week's activities.

Remembering to take careful consideration concerning ones wardrobe
and appearance can help avoid headaches when it comes to probing
police and pesky Federal Agents. Choosing to wear all black, or
clothing with anarchist imagery in transit to one's destination may
draw negative attention from authorities; instead, layer with
different color clothing to keep warm and blend in with the crowds.
Keep in mind too that all patches, designs, and logos are
identifiable, so if anonymity is desired, keep with plain
solids.Layers or another pair of clothing can also be rotated to
protect from identification.

Masks (such as bandannas) are legal in the District of Columbia, but
scarves will serve the same purpose as well as help to keep warm,
and attract less attention. Further suggestions on protest
preparedness are available at:

Mass Action Handbook
