5-Step Rebellion: Toasting La Policia

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters.


Now that no one can alert the police to your antics, and the police themselves are isolated in their station, you can attack them a little more directly.

The Molotov Cocktail is your final lesson in rebellion. At this stage the free-form vagueness of the earlier lessons is gone, and precision measurements are required. The rag you insert into the bottle, for instance, can extend “no more than 20cm from the rim.”

Following these instructions to the letter is essential to insure the downfall of the evil regime. The “FFM” also offers a variation on this tactic in which you perforate drums of gasoline and throw the “coctel” at them, for a more pronounced, albeit more dangerous, effect.

 

Such are the demands of liberation, no?

Addendum:
The MoJo Wire does not condone the use of these tactics against any government, tyrannical or otherwise.

Retreat? | Advance!

Thank you!

We didn't know what to expect when we told you we needed to raise $400,000 before our fiscal year closed on June 30, and we're thrilled to report that our incredible community of readers contributed some $415,000 to help us keep charging as hard as we can during this crazy year.

You just sent an incredible message: that quality journalism doesn't have to answer to advertisers, billionaires, or hedge funds; that newsrooms can eke out an existence thanks primarily to the generosity of its readers. That's so powerful. Especially during what's been called a "media extinction event" when those looking to make a profit from the news pull back, the Mother Jones community steps in.

The months and years ahead won't be easy. Far from it. But there's no one we'd rather face the big challenges with than you, our committed and passionate readers, and our team of fearless reporters who show up every day.
