True Leap Press presents two new zines from recent actions which were reported on It’s Going Down.
These two new zines from True Leap Press highlight the capacity of non-imprisoned abolitionists for direct action against the prison industrial complex and white supremacist carceral state. Both zines were originally articles published on It’s Going Down.

The first zine, is entitled Taking Direct Action to #FreeThemAll: From Stateville Prison to the Front Yard of its Warden, anonymously authored. The second embedded zine, is entitled #FreeHeartlandKids: Migrant Detention Facility Under Construction Stormed in Chicago on May Day.
Both zines are a contribution to the growing public discussion regarding the range of available tactics, the scale/scope of strategy, and the implications of “where” we imagine the sites and scenes of PIC abolition praxis to be.
