(en) Canada, Ottawa, Anarchist Discussion: Crime and Inequality - Sunday, Mar 5

Date Sat, 11 Mar 2006 12:36:13 +0200


Discussion based on readings (readings summarized at the beginning)
Date/Time/Location Sunday, Mar 5/2006 @ 1:30pm
Room 201, Jack Purcell Community Centre (near Elgin and Gilmour)
Description
People have always noticed a link between inequality and crime. The majority
of crime is property crime i.e. theft, robbery, etc. The majority of violent
crime also seems to be linked to inequality. Why is this the case? Why
doesn't the state attempt to address the real causes of crime?
Readings
1) Inequality and Violence

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Anarchist Discussion Group meets every second Sunday afternoon. We
are local Ottawa activists and community members who share an
anti-authoritarian viewpoint. We are involved in diverse struggles and
believe in the importance maintaining a link between theory and practice.
Discussions are based on readings, presentations or short films. If
there are readings, they are optional and will be summarized at the
beginning of the discussion. Printouts of readings are available from OPIRG
at U of O.

All are welcome. Accessible! Child-friendly!
