Legal advice for protesters

If you are arrested, say “I am not resisting!” Once you are cuffed, say “I am going to remain silent, and I want to speak to a lawyer.” The phone number for the national Lawyers Guild is 212-679-6018. Write it on your body with sharpie because they will take your phone if you are arrested. If you see someone else getting arrested, without getting between them and the police, try to get their legal name and dob, and any notes or video on the arrest, and call the lawyers guild. Be safe out there. Power to the people.
