Disarm the NYPD has two immediate organizational goals. We will disarm the police of their guns and we will disarm them as a viable political/military entity in the neighborhoods they occupy. Disarm the NYPD seeks to monitor and pressure police, with the help of local communities and Copwatch groups, until they retreat from over-policed neighborhoods and then maintain these cop-free zones with alternative, community-based forms of conflict resolution. Copwatches are an integral part of this campaign. This evening please join us to get training on making a copwatch in your neighborhood. The training will be given by Jose LaSalle of CPU. Here’s what they do: CPU seek to end police repression through directly monitoring police while they are engaging the […]
Join the families of people executed by the NYPD, Copwatch Patrol Unit, and Disarm for a talk and discussion. People have had enough of the police invading neighborhoods, terrorizing hallways, executing people over minor disobedience. The massive protests these past few months let us know that it’s not just longtime political organizers who feel this way. There is massive popular support for real resistance to the police. While these protests may have gotten quieter in the dead of winter, we never stopped planting seeds of dissent for the spring. It is time for some material changes on the ground. By now it is clear that these changes will not come through the court system or street demos. This evening Disarm […]
The Spook Who Sat by the Door is a 1973 film based on the 1969 novel of the same name by Sam Greenlee. It is both a satire of the civil rights struggle in the United States of the late 1960s and a serious attempt to focus on the issue of black militancy. Dan Freeman, the titular protagonist, is enlisted in the Central Intelligence Agency’s elitist espionage program as its token black. After mastering agency tactics, however, he becomes disillusioned and drops out to train young Chicago blacks as “Freedom Fighters”. As a story of one man’s reaction to white ruling-class hypocrisy, the film is loosely autobiographical and personal.The novel and the film also dramatize the CIA’s history of giving training […]

For more than 500 years, the indigenous pueblos of Mexico have been resisting, and continue in struggle. For more than 500 years, while displacement, exploitation, disregard and repression persist, we keep on saying YA BASTA! ENOUGH! In 1994, while President Salinas was celebrating the beginning of another new year, the year in which the infamous NAFTA would begin and with that, the consolidation of the capitalist system with the new neoliberal proposal in Mexico, a group of rebel indigenous peoples from southeast Mexico appeared, forever changing the history of Mexico and the world. The EZLN (Zapatista Army of National Liberation) would burst onto the scene and into the Mexican reality and consciousness with the cry of YA BASTA! WE’VE HAD […]
Friday May 16, 8:00 pm Anarchists are no strangers to state repression. For decades movements have been supported by following the dictum: Nobody talks and everybody walks. From a strategic perspective, a movement will not succeed without uncompromising solidarity. Yet when it comes to the lives of our close comrades, this theory becomes concrete. How many revolutionaries have been kept from the hands of the state by someone simply remaining quiet, whatever the consequences? We are proud to announce the first speaking engagement of Grand Jury resister Jerry Koch since he has walked tall out of the Metropolitan Department of Corrections in what the judge called, “endless contempt”. He will be in conversation with his indomitable lawyer, Moira Meltzer-Cohen. […]
