Description

Need to become Anonymous on demand? Could carrying a revolutionary around in your pocket change the world? Become the face of the movement.

Fold this bandana in half to transform into the famous fawksy provocateur from the comic pages. It's perfect for protecting yourself from sudden dust storms and outbreaks of authoritarianism. Keep your neck warm during those cold sit-ins. Use it as an impromptu rucksack to cart your gear from Zuccotti Park when the cleaners come. Cut eye holes to wear as a full face mask for added anonymity. Flag Fawkes. This is the hanky code for revolution.

This bandanna is made of a breathable 100% cotton batiste and printed with bright white polymer ink. The fabric is slightly translucent, so can be worn full over the face in a pinch. It is printed with some sage advice for safe, sane protesting with thoughts on dealing with the police, how to dress for protest success, and important numbers to call in the event of interactions with the law.

The full text on the bandana reads:
» Do not speak with officers. Keep your mouth shut, comply, and request to speak with a lawyer. DO NOT RESIST ARREST. DO NOT CONSENT TO SEARCH.
» ACLU aclu.org/affiliates (212) 607-3300
» NLG nlg.org (212) 679-5100
» Fold bandana in half horizontally to use as half-face mask. Measure against face and cut eye holes to use as full-face mask. Soak in vinegar and wear over mouth as an improvised defense against pepper spray and tear gas.
» HELP YOUR FELLOW ANONS. If you see someone down check for breathing or neck/back injuries. If they can get up on their own help them up. DO NOT DRAG SOMEONE WITH A BACK INJURY TO THEIR FEET.
» Turn off location services on mobile devices while tweeting, posting updates, or uploading photos.
» Carry only an ID, cash, emergency medical info, and important phone numbers in your wallet.
» Contact people to let them know where you'll be and what to do if you cannot get back in touch.
» Record all interactions with officers. Have friends around to ditch data with.
» Remain calm: Do not incite, fight, or push. Public sentiment will favor the peaceful.
» Do not wear contact lenses. They trap pepper spray. Not fun.
» Cover up. Pepper spray isn't just for your eyes.
» Remove piercings and jewelry. Your nipples will thank you.

DISCLAIMER: All advice offered on this bandana should not be construed as legal council. Consult a lawyer in the event of any involvement with the law. If you cite a bandana as your legal council in court you will be laughed at by a man in a wig.

We are ANONYMOUS. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.

* I have been informed by protestors that the vinegar soaked bandana isn't as effective as one soaked in water or a 50/50 mix of Maalox for thwarting tear gas
* The NLG number I have provided is for the New York office. Although they can connect you to other branches of the NLG, they are unfortunately not the central dispatch and will sometimes be overrun by calls if there is action happening in New York. Plan ahead with numbers specific to your area.

Please note for shipping purposes, the bandana weighs about 2oz.

    I originally purchased this bandana 3 years ago. I lost it at a festival and was sooo beyond happy they were still making them. The color stayed bright even after 3 years of festivals, direct sunlight and dust. Great quality!! Also shipped quick.
