Forum Post: oh crap!

I might have not seen it, but has there been any planning for what happens when 20000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches come out the other end of 20000 protesters, assuming there is great success with the turnout? Where will folks relieve themselves in an extended occupation? Are there donated funds for porta-jons? Homemade compost toilets? What to do when either are full? What to do with the compost once it's cooked down (sell it to the green gorillas as a souvenir)? I'm only bringing up this logistic because protesters will possibly be facing enough danger from the NYPD to also worry about creating a biohazard of epic proportions with their own wastes. If there aren't extremely organized centers to dispose of human wastes, people, especially people in a highly stressful situation, will seek relief wherever. The rain will wash it everywhere, and flies will feast in the heat. I seriously doubt there's been no planning on this, but since I couldn't find comment on it, thought I'd bring it up before the shit hits the fan....

What about hygene? We should talk about donating deorderant and toiletries.

Right now me and a few others are working on maps of public restrooms. Obviously we need to be doing more, but portable toilets are not exactly cheap.

Feel like getting some 3-day and 7-day and 1-month quotes for us? Perhaps find a business willing to volunteer them?

Lift a manhole cover, build a tent around it and away goes the dysentery. Hah

And don't forget to bring a pipe wrench to pop open the fire hydrants. Water will be a must.

Empty 5 gallon buckets(with lid, for the love of pete), trashbag liners, sawdust. Voila.

compost toilets aren't THAT hard to build, they just need a few planks of wood and perhaps a plastic bag liner. they don't smell at all if you put some wood chips or sawdust in with the poop. humanure handbook (available in full on the internet) has some great, reliable, concise information on the topic. emptying them isn't that gross either if you're just brisk and thoughtful about it.
