As the DNC inches closer to Philly are you interested in learning more about the Republican National Convention protests of 2000?
Check out the link below to read SLAM! Herstory Project’s pamphlet.
“We Shut Down The City”: Six former Student Liberation Action Movement (SLAM) memberes reflect on the mass direct actions against the 2000 RNC in Philadelphia
We also highly recommend former R2K Legal Collective member Kris Hermes’ excellent book, ‘Crashing the Party: Legacies and Lessons from the RNC 2000’. This book explores the protests themselves and the coordinated legal campaign that followed that won not only in the courts, but also shifted the media narrative and shed light on the coordinated campaign of repression by the city and law enforcement. It can be ordered on Amazon of course, but why give your money to them? Get it directly from the publisher here:
