true crime is bad in every conceivable way. it exploits real people's grief, teaches people paranoid lies about risk in a way which has become completely culturally pervasive, and props up the carceral state.
Suggesting that convicts shouldn't complain about their conditions is like telling a homeless person to deal with the weather, or a poor person to suck it up and live in poverty. Just because our actions led us to our existence, doesn't mean they are justifiable conditions

"We propose that, in these so-called safe spaces of civility and high-roadism, . . . many felt alienated, disengaged, and alone."
Part 1 of our analysis of the UNL anti-FIJI protests is now available to read:
1500 people have been on Rikers Island for more than 1 year waiting for their day in court. If trends hold up, about 50% of those cases will be dismissed and about 4% will end in prison sentences. Almost everyone else will be released.
#Occupy wasn't a success because a few Democrats looted its slogans. It erupted not because of, but in the void of 'the Left.' It showed the power of mass action against capital, how struggles could organize without bosses + the limits of non-violence in the face of the State.
Today, it's been 10 years since Occupy Wall Street kicked off, bringing anti-capitalist ideas to the mainstream in the US.
In this thread, we'll explore the history of Occupy.
