With the Republican National Convention just weeks away in Cleveland, Upping the Anti is pleased to publish an article on the importance of jail solidarity in radical social movements. Giving a history of a range of mass demonstrations from world economic organizations to national conventions in the US, Hermes discusses the importance of jail solidarity tactics for activists today.

The World is Changing and UTA is Changing with it: A Statement from the UTA Editorial Committee
One week before she began serving a 16th month sentence related to her participation in organizing the G20 protests, UTA sat down with Amanda Hiscocks for a wide ranging discussion about her situation as a political prisoner and her analysis of the fallout of state repression against those organizing against the G20 summit in Toronto in 2010. This interview will be published in a forthcoming issue of UTA, but we are making the raw audio available here so that activists can get a better a sense of Mandy’s assessment of the features of state repression and what needs to be done to support the G20 political prisoners.
