Fuck the Police Means We Don't Act Like Cops to Each Other
Fuck the Police Means We Don't Act Like Cops to Each Other is a collection of writing on resisting cancel culture and building a left grounded in compassion, kindness, freedom, and respect for difference. This zine explores many related issues including: defining cancel culture, how cancel culture perpetuates harm rather than addressing it, what it means to take responsibility when we've harmed someone, the practice of intervening on violent situations, a trauma informed challenge to the 'believe survivors' narrative, the need for dissent and disagreement on the left, nervous system education, and overcoming people pleasing. This zine takes the work of justice and liberation seriously, values the healing and autonomy of survivors, believes no one is disposable, and seeks to build communities that are not punitive or authoritarian. This is a love letter to left we are building together, toward a more just world where we aren't afraid of our friends.
