Also everything I create is public domain so that if you think for any reason my name shouldn't be attached to it (you hate me, you think I have to much clout, you just hate names in general) you can just take my name off it and continue passing it around.

Every piece of media I ever create will always be free to everyone because it is more important that knowledge spreads than it is for me to receive compensation. I encourage you all to do the same.

"Riot Medicine: Bridge Guide" for professional healthcare workers is available for free download. It's short enough to read in a couple of hours and will help you cross over from clinical medicine to being a street medic. riotmedicine.net/downloads/

Me: I am going to write the shortest possible bridge guide for docs 'n nurses to become street medics.

Guide: *is somehow 60 pages*

Me: FUCK FUCK FUCK

@lilletale Yeah I guess that's better than a medic riot 🤔🤔🤔

There’s no right answer. People can learn medicine and how to navigate a riot. In my experience on different teams, a good protester with a bit of medical knowledge tends to be better than a good doc with a bit of protest knowledge. At least when things get remotely feisty

I think my first book failed to clarify this sufficiently. A riot medic is protester first, medic second.

A good medic can do more with a small pouch of gloves, gauze, and water than an inexperienced paramedic with a dummy thicc bag full of everything they could need.

Knowing how to move through chaos and snatch people away to safety, how to talk to them and be fluid as the situation changes is the most important skill. If you can't find your patient or you get arrested trying to extract them, all the skills/equipment in the world mean nothing

High level medical knowledge is not sufficient to make someone a riot medic. An experienced protester with only knowledge of first aid is near universally a better medic than a physician who does not know how to handle themself at a protest.

One of the other things I'm working on. Finally doing a medic-ish zine with some others.

I try to never read tankies' writings, and I'm glad someone else does, because this but from the Qiao Collective is so gross, and it is equally gross the so many lefties defend these positions.

Being on a more active masto instance is nice because when I post endless garbage, the local timeline isn't mostly me for some 4 hours straight

Me: I can't focus.

Me: What if I crank Death Grips even louder, surly that will help.
