How to Prepare for State Repression

There are some things you can do to prepare yourselves and your community if you are concerned about state repression:

  • Talk to your housemates, partners or lovers, or anyone else whose house you spend significant time at about the different possibilities of what repression could look like and what they should do if the state shows up to talk to them. 
  • Talk about how the state visiting your family or your work might impact you and others and make a plan for how you want to address this with your family and/ or your work with trusted comrades. 
  • Make a support plan with others you trust that can answer these questions: what do you need in terms of mental, emotional and material support when you are faced with a crisis? What would you need if you got arrested? What would you need if you went to jail for an extended period?
