After last night’s spirited march against police violence and in solidarity with the rebellion in Ferguson, we felt it might be useful to share some resources with people in Tucson. We hope folks can use these to continue building momentum for ongoing struggle against the police here in Tucson.
More resources geared toward alternatives to policing and incarceration are being compiled now, so keep an eye out for those. Also, this list will be updated regularly, so feel free to contact us with suggestions for more content. It’s also worth noting that there’s an outrageous English-language bias in these materials – if anyone can help with translation, we will do layout for versions in other languages.
We can get free hard copies of zines and posters (including in larger quantities) to people in the Tucson area. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Something is happening, let’s not drop the ball.
This zine is a rough transcript of Harsha Walia’s defense of black bloc tactics during a debate following actions against the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Video of her half of the debate can be seen here.
