Collective Legal Resistance! NLG Member Kris Hermes Event This Sun. 6/26, 4-6 pm

Join us this Sunday, June 26th, 4 pm to 6 pm, at Mother Foucault’s Bookshop for an engaging discussion with activist and author Kris Hermes on political repression, the National Security State, and collective legal resistance.  This event is co-sponsored by the Portland NLG chapter, the Civil Liberties Defense Center, the Hella 503 Collective, Portland Rising Tide, and will be moderated by NLG attorney Ashlee Albies.

Hermes, formerly on staff with the National Lawyers Guild and a member of multiple radical law collectives, will discuss how the playbook of tactics developed during the 2000 Republican convention protests are still used to stifle dissent across the U.S. today. Hermes will also discuss ways in which activists can employ radical, innovative and confrontational forms of resistance to the legal system.  Hermes is the author of Crashing the Party: Legacies and Lessons from the RNC 2000, published by PM Press.  Crashing the Party is an engrossing combination of social history and courtroom drama, the book explains the origins of contemporary protest policing and the creative resistance used to overcome it.

When: This Sunday, June 26th at 4-6 pm
Where: Mother Foucault’s Bookshop, 523 SE Morrison St, Portland, OR 97214
