Learn to defend yourself against shady people

Don’t try to deny it. Cal’s a great the best university, but it still has its drawbacks. As some of you may or may not know, the “hobos” [1] around Berkeley are, for the most part, friendly and even interesting to talk to. However, there are a few shady people that most of us wouldn’t want to come across, especially after a satisfying late night at Foothill or Crossroads. Worst comes to worst, a delirious drunk dude comes at you, demanding money and unicorn blood! What can you do? Spray him down.

Don’t have a can of pepper spray [2] handy? Fret not, the Free Pepper Spray and Self Defense Forum want to equip Cal student with the knowledge and the weapon of choice against said threat. Inspired by the recent robberies [3] that have been happening around campus, UCPD officers and GenEq staff will be at 166 Barrows to teach you some skills! The forum starts this Wednesday, March 5 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

If you stick around until the end, FREE pepper spray awaits you!
