Book as Tactic: NYC Launch for Debt Resisters' Operations Manual

Friday, April 4, 2014 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm
20 Cooper Square, 4th Floor
New York, NY 10003
United States
Join us on Friday April 4th for the New York City launch of the fully revised and updated edition of The Debt Resisters' Operations Manual (DROM), published by Common Notions/PM Press.
We will discuss the original conception of the DROM as a form of collaborative research to emerge from Occupy Wall Street, and reflect on the possibilities of using the format of the book as an organizing tool in the task of building a debt-resistance movement. Along with a brief introduction to the revised edition of the DROM, the event will also be an opportunity to celebrate the role played by books in emancipatory movements more generally—including book blocs of course! Refreshments will be served, red squares will be distributed, and plans will be hatched for moving from analysis to action in the years to come.
Written by a network of activists, writers, and academics from Strike DebtThe Debt Resisters’ Operations Manual reveals how the predatory debt system works to increase inequality, undermine democracy, and ruin lives. It provides detailed strategies for fighting common forms of debt and lays out an expansive vision for a societal movement of debt resistance. The full text of the manual is available here for free:
