Around the country, and even around the world, cities have exploded in anger over police violence, triggered by the murder of George Floyd. I’ve written a short essay for Roar examining the particular character of the unrest, and its relationship to concessions and reforms (on the one hand) and the goal of abolition (on the other).
I then elaborate on the theme in an interview with Hard Crackers.
I’ve also written a more personal essay, reflecting on the experience of losing my father in the midst of a pandemic. That one is at the AK Press blog.
