Openness

It is best to tell everyone what you are doing – there is huge power in telling the government, the police and the media where you will be and when, and then doing it.

It is also respectful to give members of the public /city transport management due warning of disruption so they can choose to not drive their car/take another route. Recognize important routes where access needs to be clear for emergency vehicles. We aim to disrupt, but not to harm.
