Counterinsurgency Lecture in Olympia (April 2014)

I will be giving a talk on community policing and counterinsurgency:

Thursday, April 10, at 5pm

Lecture Hall 2 at the Evergreen State College, Olympia, Washington.

The talk is sponsored by Abolish Cops and Prisons.

In related news, on April 4, I gave an interview alongside Luce Guillén-Givins, discussing political repression and the book Life During Wartime. It was broadcast on KFAI’s program “Catalyst” and is archived at their site.

Speaking in Minneapolis (April 2014)

I’ll be giving two talks in Minneapolis, both relating to Life During Wartime: Resisting Counterinsurgency.

The first is Friday, April 4, 1pm, at the University of Minnesota, Social Science Tower room 614.  I’ll be discussing counterinsurgency, community policing, and the role of social scientists in both.

The second is Saturday, April 5, at 4:30pm, at the Minnehaha Free Space (3747 Minnehaha Avenue).  I’ll be speaking alongside Luce Guillén-Givins (one of the RNC 8, and a contributor to the book), as well as a couple other local activists.

Or, if you can’t make either of the talks, you can still hear me on the radio.  Friday April 4, 9am: I’ll be interviewed on KFAI 90.3fm Mpls/106.7fm St.Paul, online at
