History(s) of Activism

The anar­chist coo­king studio

01: What do I do about tear gas:

  • Remo­ve con­ta­ct lenses
  • Lemon juice around eyes and on face cloths, keep renewing!
  • The para­me­di­cs have sodium bicar­bo­na­te to flush.
  • Immedia­te­ly car­ry uncon­scious per­sons away from gas: Dan­ger to life.
  • Rin­se eyes immedia­te­ly and LONG with water.
  • Tear open with fin­gers and hold direct­ly under water!
  • Nur­sing mothers should express and DIS­PO­SAL of milk for two days after con­ta­ct with tear gas or tear gas fluid.
  • Wet or damp clothes away immedia­te­ly! Long con­ta­ct brings ghast­ly wounds.

02: The Molo­tov cocktail:

  • You need a glass bot­t­le with 0.3 — 0.5 liters volume.
  • The glass should not be too thick and break easily.
  • As a fuse you take a .….….. Cot­ton cloth, about 35cm long and 5cm wide.
  • .… .….….… … … … .….… … .….….….… are ide­al, 0.3l selt­zer bot­t­les are par­ti­cu­lar­ly sui­ta­ble for long distance throwing
  • The screw cap clamps … .…. …, the .….bot­t­le is tight­ly clo­sed and .….….…. … .….…. rea­dy for use.
  • .…… .….….…, .…. .… .….….., …, .….., .….….…. .…… .….…
  • … .…. … .…. .…. .….. .…..
  • Aim calm­ly and accu­rate­ly. Do not panic!

03: Paint bombs:

You need:

  • Free ran­ge eggs
  • Color — ever­ything is pos­si­ble — water­co­lor is boring
  • a syrin­ge for filling
  • a tooth­pick or needle
  • Gaf­fa tape and a tea towel

And off we go to the unchris­ti­an Easter:

  • Poke holes in the top and bot­tom and blow out the eggs
  • Wash and dry the blown out eggs
  • Tape the lower hole with gaffa
  • Care­ful­ly inject the paint, make it nice and full
  • Glue the upper hole, bang, rea­dy: paint bomb
