Prison Resistance in the Archive
October 20, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm BST
As part of #nottheanarchistbookfair we will be running a session about histories and archives of prison resistance. While the prison strikes in the US have made global headlines in the last months, MayDay Rooms holds a range of historical materials, including newspapers from the New England Prisoners Association (NEPA), issues of Black Flag, personal ephemera from the Strangeways riots, and a special collection on deaths in police custody. The workshop will offer an opportunity to collectively explore and discuss these archives, and to think about them in the context of contemporary activism and struggles inside and outside prison.
