5-Step Rebellion: Toasting La Policia

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.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
