Organising for Abolition Skill Share: This Weekend!

516508How can we build a movement for prison abolition in the UK? How can we build literacy and understanding around terms like ‘prison abolition’ and ‘prison industrial complex’? How do we do this work with those healing from prison and create a supportive culture of care and solidarity? How do we do this work with people completely new to radical politics or alternative thinking?

This weekend is a chance for people from around the UK to come together to explore, create and critique how we can work together for prison abolition.

We will explore language, popular education tools and practices, community organising and more.

Where: St Werburghs Community Centre, Bristol

When: Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th May 2014, 10 – 4pm

Logistics: Unfortunately we cannot financially support everyone with travel costs, however if you get in touch soon enough we can do our best. We can source sleeping space for people to stay in Bristol. There is room for about 25 people max & we welcome a diversity of people to make it happen.

We are designing the programme with everyone’s input. So far we have sessions introducing popular education, movement history (mainly UK & US), organising an ABC group/doing solidarity work, detention centres & migration, supporting someone through court, rape & domestic violence, community & radical accountability processes. There will also be sessions with info about the prison industrial complex in the UK so we are all up to speed.

Please email us ASAP beforehand so we can collectively design the weekend together –  info@prisonabolition.org

    FREEDOM WILL BLOSSOM FROM THE ASHES OF THE PRISONS

    ”this prison society we are all enslaved in must feel the warmth of its setting fire to

    it must burn from the inside and on the outside and even more within ourselves

    then truly our existence is that of freedom alongside our sisters and brothers, again

    in the streets once more, again..”
