Manifestation Card: Popular Defense Committees

"Each liberating faction may build the following number of barricades (let's assume 2) around any district where they have an occupation"

If the student faction has three occupations, do I
a) choose one area of occupation out of the three and place 2 barricades
(total of 2 barricades placed)
b) put 2 barricades at each of the three occupation sites
(total of 6 barricades placed )
Or other?

Thanks!

I have a similar/more generalized question. A lot of the manifestation cards read so as to imply that they have an effect wherever the condition is met (districts with occupations, districts with riot vans/riot cops), but that interpretation seems overpowered. I'm guessing it's more like your description (a), where we pick a single qualifying district. That said, I wouldn't complain if the official interpretation is (b).

Good question! I can see how that wording is confusing. :/

For both of my following examples, let's assume that the liberated district difficulty is 3.

For Popular Defense Committees: Each faction that has blocs that help liberate the district may build 2 barricades around any 1 district where they have an occupation. So, if you are the Students faction, you get to build 2 barricades around 1 district.

For Uprising: Each faction that has blocs that help liberate the district may defeat 2 riot cops in 1 or more districts as long as a riot van is also in the target district. So if you are the Students faction, you can choose to remove 1 riot cop from 2 different districts (2 total).

Hope that makes sense! Feel free to ask more clarifying questions.

This one. Any district not every district.
