The City Hall protesters and their methodology are rife with the hallmarks of Baltimore's debate strategy. Containing youth from Baltimore Bloc, City Bloc, the Baltimore Algebra Project, the West Coalition, Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle, and Youth As Resources, the students are extremely organized. First, the students planned their action for Wednesday—just in case they were arrested—because there was no school on Thursday or Friday due to teacher in-service training. Then, on the Sunday before the sit-in, the high school students asked some of their adult allies to do nonviolent civil-disobedience training with them, spending four hours role-playing and learning what they could expect from police and "baby booking," the juvenile facility. Then, a few days before the Wednesday City Council meeting, the high schoolers joined the other young activists in sending out a clearly delineated, 19-point call for the rules of engagement to the police as they anticipated the slew of upcoming protests. They called for such things as police clearly displaying badges and name tags, police not blocking the sidewalks and forcing protesters into the streets where they would be arrested for obstructing traffic, and not donning militaristic riot gear unless necessary for actual riots.
