ABOLITION NOW!: TEN YEARS OF STRATEGY AND STRUGGLE AGAINST THE PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX




$15 each, includes shipping and handling

by The CR10 Publications Collective
(paperback, 2008)

Published in honor of Critical Resistance’s tenth anniversary, Abolition Now! reflects the themes Dismantle, Change, and Build. It presents bold strategies to create a stronger movement of people committed to PIC abolition and to build healthy communities free from surveillance, policing, and imprisonment.

Abolition does not just demand that we close prisons; it demands that we open the means by which all people can live lives of security, opportunity, and beauty. Read this book to find out what is happening, and how to fight on every front against prison as a deadly, catch-all response to social, economic, cultural and political problems.

– Ruthie Gilmore, author of Golden Gulag: Prisons, Surplus, Crisis, and Opposition in Globalizing California

INSTEAD OF PRISONS: A HANDBOOK FOR ABOLITIONISTS



$20 each includes shipping and handling

by Prison Research Education Action (Editor), republished with a new forward by Critical Resistance (paperback, 2006)

When it was first published three decades ago, Instead of Prisons proposed a conceptual toolkit for those of us who believed then that ever larger numbers of prisons would result in a dangerous entrenchment of the racism we were trying to eliminate. We now face what was our worst nightmare: proliferating penal institutions linked to a global prison industrial complex that transforms bodies of color into society’s excess. The republication of this handbook by Critical Resistance is a response to this contemporary emergency. Prisons must be abolished of there will be no hope for a democratic future.

-Angela Y. Davis, Professor Emeritus, History of Consciousness, University of California, Santa Cruz and author of Are Prisons Obsolete?

THE ABOLITIONIST NEWSPAPER

The Abolitionist, launched in the spring of 2005, is a bilingual (English/Spanish) publication dedicated to the strategy and practice of prison industrial complex abolition. It is distributed absolutely free of charge to over 3,000 people in prisons, jails, and detention centers throughout the US, who in turn share the paper with many more of their fellow prisoners.  As George Jackson said: The point is..in the face of what we confront, to fight and win. That’s the real objective: not just to make statements, no matter how noble, but to destroy the system that oppresses us. By any means available to us. And to do this, we must be connected, in contact and communication with those in the struggle on the outside.abby21_sp_final
