Inside the Growing On-Campus Abolitionist Movement

On this episode of It’s Going Down, we speak with SA Smythe, who is “a statewide coordinating committee member of the faculty wing of California Cops Off Campus and organizes with students and other comrades in the broader Cops Off Campus Coalition and other abolitionist/anti-carceral groups across Turtle Island and in Europe.”

We discuss the rise of abolitionist organizing on college campuses, the recent “Abolitionist May” month of action, and where the movement is going in the post-George Floyd world. We also talk about the repressive role of campus police against on campus movements and struggles, and in enforcing gentrification and racial apartheid.
