Jenna Peters-Golden: “Stare Down the State”

The recent FBI raids in the Pacific Northwest are thinly veiled tactics to enact state repression on left and radical thinkers and do-ers. These clear violations of civil rights follow in a long tradition of the state using fear and brute threats to keep us too afraid to vision, to dream, and to resist.

My courage is soaring as I see projects like No Papers, No Fears and the PNW Grand Jury Resisters stare down the state and flex the much stronger muscles of community, bravery, and creative resistance.
