I considered painting my face, as I have read online, with some stripes and shit to break it up, but, Philly isn't the dynastic pederast necromancer financial vatican that Manhattan is, so their camera systems are pretty broke and shitty. I just kept a hood on and wore big sunglasses all day. South Street doesn't even have any, last time I walked it, though people on the street caution that there are a lot of secret policemen.
It's no joke about the cell phones, they do track them. At Occupy police also used facial recognition cameras. I think bloodorchid's advice is sound regarding credit cards as well. I am probably your polar opposite politically, but I support your right to protest, as well as your right to privacy, and those rights are severely eroded these days.
I didn't bring the phone, only spent cash, and avoided photographs. I ended up kind of in the background in profile with a hood blocking my face in one picture I saw on Facebook. Mission Accomplished! lol
Kenn- nothing to do with the 2nd ammendment. It was Bradley Manning's 1000th day locked up.
"Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
