w/ Garrett Fitzgerald, traveling from Minneapolis MN, formerly charged with terrorism as an RNC8 defendant and an organizer against state repression.
Amidst a political climate where people face prison time, unprecedented surveillance, and terrorist charges for their beliefs and actions in solidarity with each other and the earth, it seems ever more important to engage together to create organizing models that are build to withstand state repression.
State repression is an inevitable response to our empowered communities acting in defense of the land, water, and one another. How can our organizing lay the groundwork to stand up to the states' attempts to undermine our efforts? And once repression is happening, how can our communities respond in a way that is strengthening and advances our struggles? Join us for this presentation and discussion to talk about these questions and more.
