• Have one person designated to work with the police. This will help the police know the point of contact and avoid confusion;
  • Review your property line with the police so everyone is clear and discuss a “no fly zone” for drones and no parking areas on roadways;
  • Designate one person (who is able to remain calm) to monitor the property line and nearby protestor activity if police are not present to do so;
  • Define your property boundary at the end of the laneway. Use marker paint or a rope to define property lines on the ground; and
  • Block laneways and entrances, where possible, with gates, chains, ropes, vehicles or farm equipment.

If you know how long the planned protest is expected to last, try to limit any activity on the site during that time; give them nothing to film and no one to interview.

If possible, limit traffic moving on and off the property, especially heavy machinery and trucks. This will help reduce the chances of needless, and potentially negative engagement.
