About Rififi Bloomington
It turns out South-Central Indiana isn’t such a placid spot after all. Cop racism provokes clashes in Evansville. Repression on the Secure Housing Unit leads to prisoner protests in Wabash Valley. When farmers and eco-anarchists organize against I-69, they are hounded and crushed. Close to home, the belt is being tightened with more and more restrictions on public benefits and the always-rising tuitions at IU and Ivy Tech, alongside enhanced police budgets to keep in line those who object.
These tensions are our starting point: not for an abstract politics, but a will to expose these violent contradictions, and to struggle within them. Rififi Bloomington will aggregate news and events from a variety of sources and tendencies, with the understanding that locally, we have a choice: to watch passively as the world’s rulers impose austerity and repression globally and at home, or to coordinate our struggles and take control of our lives.
