PM Press author and legal/media activist Kris Hermes spoke at Groundwork Books Friday evening about the ways that activists can use the legal system to push back against state repression. Drawing on his experience organizing with ACT UP and against the 2000 Republican National Convention in Philadelphia, Kris described collective strategies that dissidents planning an action or caught up in the legal system could implement to avoid or reduce charges, including jail solidarity such as withholding identity, clogging up the court system by demanding a jury trial and refusing to plead out, and developing a coordinated media strategy that paints a sympathetic picture of activists and their cause for the general public. --Read More--

Solidaridad con Ayotzinapa

anonymous

On the night of November 5th 2014 community members of San Diego gathered to denounce the former Mexican ambassador to the U.S. While news of the 43 sequestered Normalista students was barely a month old, the representative of the bad government of Mexico made his way to the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) to sell his neo-liberal agenda to a crowd of hopeful geo-political junkies. In the wake of an insurrectionary atmosphere all over Mexico on the 47th anniversary of the Tlatelolco Massacre, the Mexican people also took to the streets to demand answers regarding the murder and disappearance of students from the Normal Rural Raul Isidro Burgos in Ayotzinapa, Guerrero.

Under these circumstances, community members gathered and coordinated an interruption of ambassador Arturo Sarukhán's farcical presentation. Not only did these efforts shed light on another mass disappearance orchestrated by Mexican state/para-military forces that was receiving little attention in international news, but it also displayed the willingness of a unified group to defend the lives and dignity of friends and families engaged in social struggle on the other side of the colonial dividing wall. The collective effort was also instrumental in the subsequent unification and coordination that took place between individuals and organizations-collectives to materially effect the social situation both in Mexico and here in the Kumiai border town known as San Diego.

After the community walked out of the room, they continued to chant and denounce outside the building both the attack on the Normalista students and the NAFTA. "Eres embajador de la muerte" translation "You are the ambassador of death" exclaimed a community member who could no longer wait until the sign to begin the action. Why? because Sarukhán was spewing lies and we could no longer let him sell NAFTA as something good and beneficial for the people of Mexico.

Support the I-5 5!

This call for collaborations is on behalf of the 5 protestors that have been unfairly targeted by authorities after their participation in nation-wide actions against the grand jury decision to not indict Officer Wilson for the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Protestors, many of whom included UCSD students, wanted to call attention to the increasing incidents of police brutality against black people that routinely goes unpunished.
