The Atlantic has a great post on a 26-page pamphlet that they have deemed an Activists’ Action Plan for the political protests in Egypt. The pamphlet has tips and advice for protesters demanding reform in their country. The pamphlet includes diagrams and tactics for dealing with the riot police and security forces.

One page includes advice on necessary clothing and accessories, such as a leather jacket or sweatshirt with a hood, garbage can lid or pot lid to use a shield, protected glasses, scarf to cover mouth, spray paint, gloves, and comfortable shoes.
