One of the first things people comment or ask about when they think of security for direct action events is that you need to have a certain muscle mass or certain height. This is not true. Just like with the medical team, there are many support roles that one can participate in. Also, being on the security team doesn't mean we are constantly engaged in action. We need veterans on bikes, we use specific maneuvers and positioning while on foot, and we need individuals to help manage communications during events. As with any of the positions, if you have questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We will not ever purposely put anyone in harms way. We are there to ensure citizens have their right to speak freely, but we always have plans in place for evacuation in case events escalate.
