On Feb 25th the Oakland Chapter of Critical Resistance held an event at the East Side Cultural Center to celebrate the release of the 19th issue of the Abolitionist: a publication dedicated to the abolition of the strategy and practice of the prison industrial complex. The event was titled “Strong Mind Strong Movements “ and invited people to join in on a discussion about how policing, surveillance and imprisonment compromise our mental health and the ways that organizing can keep us connected, healthy and strong. CR had invited Azadeh Zohrabie of Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity Coalition, Aurora Lopez of Xicana Moratorium Coalition and Claude Marks, former political prisoner and founder of Freedom Archives. The audio above is the entire audio from the event. The audio below is a segment of the event that will be aired on Radio Autonomia for the March show.
