Discussion on Legal Resistance and Radical Legal Strategies: Bringing Political Movements into the Courtroom [Berkeley]

  • Moe's Books 2476 Telegraph Avenue Berkeley, CA, 94704 United States (map)

This past August marked the 15-year anniversary of direct action against the prison-industrial complex and the arrest of hundreds of activists during the 2000 Republican National Convention in Philadelphia. In response, dissidents confronted new forms of political repression by pushing legal boundaries and establishing new models of collective resistance.

Join activist, author and legal worker Kris Hermes at Moe's Books on Wednesday, November 11th at 7:30pm for a discussion on his new book, Crashing the Party: Legacies and Lessons from the RNC 2000 (PM Press), to explore the origins of contemporary protest policing and the creative political resistance used to overcome it. Hermes will discuss his experiences on the ground in Philadelphia and how they relate to the movements of today.

Books will be available for purchase and signing following the discussion!
