This year’s Network for Police Monitoring (Netpol) conference offers a
unique insight into how different communities are self-organising against
police repression. Now in it’s second year, it puts ‘under one roof’ as
many people as possible who are fighting to reclaim control of their lives
from repressive state forces.
Radicals with an interest in community organising and a critique of the
police and the state would find the various discussion groups and talks
taking place of particular interest. This event will certainly get you out
of the dreaded ‘activist ghetto’ and expand the breadth of your knowledge.
With speakers from accross the spectrum of those affected by “total
policing”; such as journalists, muslim communities, protestors, kurdish
communities, squatters, lawyers, football supporters and more, this
conference is well worth attending. The ongoing work of Netpol, and their
campaign to Kettle Police Powers, essentially entails building a deeper
understanding of the mechanisms of state repression through our relative
experiences – and building a broad campaign to shift the public discourse
and take action.
In a time of increasing state repression, can you afford not to attend?
