Don't fall for the "kneeling cops" thing. I'm seeing multiple reports that immediately after kneeling for the photo, the cops beat the shit out of people.
As the link says, stay away from bridges, underpasses, and tunnels where you can be easily kettled. (I remember a particularly terrifying moment in montreal when I watched the police herd the head of our protest under a bridge. I peeled off as soon as I saw it.)
a cool thing about donating to bail funds btw: that money isn't one-and-done. unless someone actually doesn't report to court, which almost never happens, that money is returned to the bail fund to be used once again. donating $50 to a bail fund *permanently* gives them an additional $50 to use again and again as that money gets returned to them.
the bigger the pool of money a bail fund has, the more people it can help at once, since ofc your $50 cannot be used to post bail for multiple people at one time.

despite some bullshit, the nytimes does a pretty good job at explaining why this a meaningless move that basically amounts to a publicity stunt for the Fox News crowd https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/31/us/politics/trump-antifa-terrorist-group.html
Why does Utena from HYPNOSISMIC make me wanna rollerblade down the coast on a breezy summer afternoon https://youtu.be/Ca7f9mDEW_s (I couldn’t find the full version. But those are the vibes)
If you’ve already given to a Chicago bail fund and still have money left over, consider giving some to Assata’s Daughters. They are “an abolitionist organization led by Black women using a Black queer feminist lens and relationship-based tactics to organize bases of young Black people in divested-from areas of Chicago” and they’ve been doing great work for some time now. https://www.assatasdaughters.org/
Here is another reminder that everyone who touts "peaceful protest" should read This Nonviolent Stuff'll Get You Killed by Charles Cobb Jr.
Here, it's even free and I did the "hard work" of getting you the link
