Resisting the Social Control of Dissent

Shutting Down the Streets

This chapter describes antirepression, the tactics activists use to protect themselves from the social control of dissent. This analysis of antirepression work is organized to match this study's three approaches to social control, by looking at space, political economy, and violence. Activists develop technologies of education, solidarity, communal institutions, and culture to thwart and recover from political violence. Their methods range from legal collectives that work to teach people their rights and help people with criminal charges, to art projects intended to draw attention to surveillance, to creative ways of interacting with fences, to media projects focused on these issues.

Keywords:   antirepression, activists, social control, political violence, activism, dissent
