Our enemies in blue - Kristian Williams

Kristian Williams

Sometimes things in our society can look as if they were always there.
Take for example police. Today majority of the people living next to us
can’t imagine the world without police in our neighborhood. However it
was not always like that.
Kristian Williams, anarchist and author of Our Enemies in Blue and Fire
the Cops, will talk about the history of policing in the United States,
from its origin in slave patrols to the present era of militarization
and community policing.
Particular attention will be given to the role of police in repression
movement fighting for social justice and greater equality.
