@laotrah Este libro se centra en el activismo político de #AngelaDavis y nos acerca a la vida de uno de los iconos del #feminismo y una de las figuras más emblemáticas de la lucha contra el racismo y en pro de la igualdad en Estados Unidos. 
@laotrah Al inicio de este libro, #PrimoLevi conoce a los alumnos de la escuela en Turín. De la mano del escritor, los niños aprenderán qué fue el #Holocausto, y conocerán la experiencia en primera persona de uno de los supervivientes del infierno de #Auschwitz.

1. A thread on mainstream theories of incarceration - retribution, rehabilitation, deterrence, restoration, incapacitation - which are gaslighting narratives that provide a smokescreen for racial capitalism:
2. Many critics say the American carceral system is based on retribution but I disagree. It's based on racial capitalism. All of the above principles - not just retribution - are in fact utilised to enforce a system of racial capitalism...
3. If you look at actual court cases, sometimes judges sentence someone to punish them; other times, they sentence someone "for their own good," because they "can't take care of themselves"...

Bona nit!
Si busqueu lectures pre-eleccions, vinc a recordar que està en obert el meu reportatge "És possible #AbolirLaPolicia?", publicat a la #Directa516 @La_Directa
És una reflexió en profunditat sobre el model de seguretat i convivència occidental…
En el reportatge podreu llegir les reflexions i arguments de persones d'àmbits i vivències molt diferents. Una dotzena de veus situades per debatre què implicaria #AbolirLaPolicia i què cal transformar per fer-ho possible
Per evitar qualsevol aire de pamflet, vaig buscar posicions i pensaments molt diversos.

Hi llegireu una dona que investiga i denuncia el #RacismeInstitucional; un sociòleg amb argumentari anarquista; un ex-assessor tècnic en matèria de seguretat del govern de Manuela Carmena;

Where are all the “good cops” & why aren’t y’all protecting protestors from the cops inciting violence at these protests? How can we believe in an institution that does not protect peace & innocence and encourages, supports and protects murderers?
Why aren’t you protecting these people like you protect all the “women’s marches” & white led protests? Why does the entire police force show up like they are going to war with people who want justice? Why are you all so prepared to fight for this system? Why are you so scared?
Why are you so prepared to break your oaths and harm civilians? Why are you so ready to protect a murderer? Why are you so eager to be filmed in your outfits with your weapons and your false sense of authority? Where are the real badasses, the people who got involved with law

Speaking of @Ancestry ... I just finished watching the #DaughtersOf interview with #NikkiGiovanni & #AngelaDavis. It's WONDERFUL!! 💙💙💙 (This year will mark my 5th year of walking with @GirlTrek.)…
I'm named after #AngelaDavis, Twanna Angela Hines. My parents were teachers & Black Panther party members. My mother spent her career as an educator in the prison system — teaching incarcerated people how to read, a life skill needed to reintegrate after release. #DaughtersOf
My sister is Nicole, a Nikki.

Angela Davis is coming to @UWMadison for the @WUD_DLS in April. What do I have to do to get invited to a meal with her?! Twitter, tell them I’m clearly the faculty member for the job. I’m a black queer feminist activist academic. Davis is one of my heroes! Pick me!!!
Just heard from the director of the lecture series that I will be added to the list for a small reception with Dr. Davis!!!!
