I'm about to get on the road to the Alamo and although the event organizers will be coming out with some more specifics for participants, here's a short list from one of the Oathkeepers on the ground in Texas:
1. Rally points: As many people as possible need to carpool to avoid single individuals moving towards the rally site (Alamo). . . (There is concern) that if the SAPD decides to arrest people they would do it while we don't have the advantage of numbers. Furthermore, downtown SA can pose challenges for parking to begin with. There isn't a parking lot in front of the site, but there are several parking garages within 5 blocks of The Alamo that can be used for parking, several of them are free.2. Movement: We should avoid individual movement at all costs. Travel in groups to The Alamo. We don't want to open ourselves to be picked off one or two at a time.3. Warnings: (We) just learned that it is illegal to carry a lock blade knife in SA. This is amazing news . . . and can not stand, but that might be a fight for another day. For our purposes, almost every one attending has a Spyderco, Buck, Gerber, or whatever knife on them that the SAPD can use as a pretext to search us and arrest us. We need to emphasize that people leave the knives at home or in the car, that is unless we want to fight that front as well. . .4. Contact with SAPD: Contact OF COURSE needs to be professional and polite. We are trying to educate them on who we are as well as ordinary Texans. If we are stopped by police officers, they are required by Texas law to positively identify themselves as police officers with their commission and certification documents that they are all required to carry with them. As was mentioned in previous emails, the city is self insured, and individual officers can be held accountable financially as well as the city.
To this I would add that each small group have one person dedicated to video-document any contact with the SAPD.
I'll have more as the event nears.
