(en) Holand, vrije bond: VBA Reading Group Black Panthers (nl)

Date Tue, 30 Jun 2020 09:17:02 +0300


Dear readers, comrades! ---- The Vrije Bond Amsterdam reading groups are continuing in July! This month we read texts from the Black Panther movement. We already wanted to read these, but current events have made them even more relevant! ---- The Black Panthers managed to build a powerfull political movement that directly served their community and worked on alternatives for the police, while actually protecting their community. They also thought beyond country and ethnic lines and cooperated with oppressed and antikapitalist groups around them. ---- We look forward to discuss these texts with you all. ---- We're sticking with two reading groups per month, but this month one will be live again. The first reading group, already on July 2nd will take place online. The second reading group on July 16th will be live, but with due precautions.

We will read text from these two sources:
Seize the Time
