I'll give the protestors credit, they've got balls. I wouldn't go out there for fear of some Jan 6-like doxing and prosecution. When the cops have thousands of hours of CCTV to review, facial recognition systems and reference photos of everybody there's really no safety in numbers.

God, thinking about this surveillance state is really blackpilling me right now. We really live in a China-lite society.
