Featured Zine: Some Remarks on the Need for Open Assemblies

Leave a reply

We’re re-posting this article (“Why We Oppose the Police”), because as is so often the case, many of the discussions locally about Ferguson, resistance, and police tend to be very shallow and are severally limited by myths of necessity, reform, and nonviolence. There’s also a new zine version of the article that we encourage folks … Continue Reading »
