Who doesn’t need to know their rights and practice ASSERTING them in a safe space?
And have you ever witnessed police stopping someone, or clearly harassing someone, and weren’t sure if you could stop and watch? Or how to do that?
These are things that we will go over in the workshop Sunday, October 20th: basic ways to assert your rights when pulled over in your car, walking down the street, in your home (with cops knocking on your door), sitting in a park, a dorm, on a sidewalk… The rights that you can learn how to use apply to ALL kinds of police: DEA, ICE, Sheriff’s, city police, FBI- even security guards- any of them.
Maybe you can volunteer to be part of a CopWatch shift in the upcoming Days of Action Against Police Brutality (Oct 22-23)!
More and more people are finding themselves, or their children, grandchildren, uncles, aunts, and friends in encounters with police or police-like agents. Don’t wait to be in court, or worse yet, for tragedy where you wish you’d known your rights. Police will not tell you what your rights are; you have to know them and use them- or you lose them. It is up to all of us to assert our rights and teach each other how.
Hope to see you at 1:00pm or whenever you can get to the workshop.
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD, BRING SOMEONE ALONG
If you already feel practiced in asserting your rights and/or copwatching, please come help more people learn.
