What to Expect When You Are Expecting… To Be Arrested
Richmond Legal Process Guideline for Anarchists and Others

This is an outline for some important things to keep in mind when embarking on any enterprise which may lead to police detainment or arrest.

This guideline is specifically aimed at folks who might be at risk for arrest due to the political nature of their activities – from protests to civil disobedience to other forms of direct action.

Even when it is no one’s intention to be arrested, the police state will do what it do.

Preparing ahead of time, mentally and logistically can make both those incarcerated and their support network a lot less stressed out.

This guideline is a work in progress and we encourage any suggestions or additions – let us know at wingnut_collective@yahoo.com

Here are some pictures of the Wingnut in 2011. You can see our radical lending library, our literature table, and our wacky kitchen walls. If you aren’t involved in anarchist and radical projects in Richmond but you want to be, make 2011 the year you start! There is Copwatch, the Anarchist Black Cross, the RVA Radicalendar, Food Not Bombs, the RVA Zine Fest, the Monroe Campaign, Earth First, the Flying Brick Library, the Wingnut, the Really Really Free Market and more! Come by the Wingnut sometime and talk to folks about what is going on if you are interested! Here is a preview of what you can expect!

This is one of the shelves in our library. We have a section of queer books- we would love to have more- donations always accepted!
