Global Protests are Becoming More Common
Global protests have become increasingly common in recent years, and for preppers, they can be a cause for concern. While peaceful protests are a legitimate form of expression, they can sometimes escalate into violent clashes between protesters and law enforcement. Additionally, those protesting often have divisive viewpoints that can clash with those opposed to the protest. As a prepper, it is essential to consider the potential negative consequences of global protests and prepare accordingly. In this blog post, we will discuss why global protests are cause for alarm and what preppers can do to prepare for the repercussions.
Why Should you Care?
- Violence: While most protests are peaceful, there is always the potential for violence to occur. Protesters may clash with law enforcement or with counter-protesters, leading to injuries or even fatalities. In a worst case scenario, a city could devolve into anarchy and be left without rule of law.
- Disruption of Services: Protests can disrupt essential services such as transportation, communication, and healthcare. This disruption can have serious consequences for individuals who rely on these services.
- Supply Chain Bottlenecks: Protests can also disrupt supply chains, making it difficult to obtain essential goods such as food, water, and medicine.
- Property Damage: Protesters may engage in property damage or looting, leading to financial losses for individuals and businesses.
What Preppers Can Do to Prepare for Potential Negative Consequences:
- Stockpile Essential Supplies: As a prepper, it is essential to have a stockpile of essential supplies such as food, water, and medicine. This stockpile should be sufficient to last for several weeks or even months in case of disruptions to the supply chain.
- Have a Plan in Place: Preppers should have a SHTF plan in place for what they will do in case of disruptions to essential services or supply chains. This plan should include a communication strategy, a shelter plan, and a plan for obtaining essential supplies.
- Stay Informed: It is essential to stay informed about protests in your area and around the world. This can be done through social media, news outlets, and other sources of information. Make sure the news your reading is transparent and free of bias. By staying informed, preppers can anticipate potential disruptions and take appropriate measures to prepare.
- Be Prepared to Defend Yourself and Your Property: In the event of violence or property damage, preppers should be prepared to defend themselves and their property. This may include having a self-defense plan in place, securing their property, and having access to weapons if necessary.
- Consider a Bug-Out Plan: If the situation becomes too dangerous, preppers should consider having a bug-out plan in place. This plan should include a predetermined bug out location to go to and a route to get there.
Prepare for Global Protests Now:
Global protests can be a cause for concern for preppers, but by taking appropriate measures, we can minimize the potential negative consequences. It is essential to have a stockpile of essential supplies, have a plan in place for disruptions to essential services, stay informed about protests, be prepared to defend oneself and property, and consider a bug-out plan. By being proactive and prepared, preppers can ensure the safety and security of themselves and their loved ones in the face of potential disruptions caused by global protests.
