Pete in Austin for the Police Accountability Conference
Cop Block‘s Pete Eyre is on the road on the Cop Block Tour and may be coming to a city near you! His first stop was Austin, TX where he spoke at the Police Accountability Conference with Carlos Miller and other great activists. Here are videos he produced about his weekend at the conference:
It was neat how excited folks were to get out and Copblock in a big group. Unfortunately, many Copblock groups are little more than a few dedicated activists in various areas of the country. The Copblocking during the conference showed how much more effective Copblocking can be when done with larger numbers. This is why the Free State Project is so important. When we concentrate activists, activism becomes more effective. It’s been proven over and over. Imagine 300 active Copblockers living in Manchester. You’d have enough to have 30 Copblockers on the streets every day of the week. Wherever the police might pull someone over – odds are a Copblocker would be nearby to respond.
