The Black Lives Matter movement has thrown a dramatic light on police tactics and brutality in America.

But this is not merely an US phenomena — many of America¹s most repressive policing measures have been imported to Britain as mainstream policy.

Yet, in Britain the debate on policing has almost entirely focused on accountability, diversity, training, and community relations. In the last election Jeremy Corbyn¹s Labour even argued for increasing police numbers, linking falling police numbers to rising levels of crime.

But, what if the problem isn¹t training or accountability but the nature of the police itself? What if the solution to policing is not more but fewer police? And what can we learn from the response to police brutality in America?

Join renowned expert on policing, Alex Vitale, who is over from New York to discuss police reform and abolition and to launch his new book 'The End of Policing' at Conway Hall in 15th March.

TICKETS: £5 in advance.

Copies of the book are on sale at the event from the Newham Bookshop stall.

Organised in advance of 'Abolitionist Futures: Building Social Justice Not Criminal Justice — International Conference on Penal Abolition (ICOPA)' taking place from from 15-18 June 2018 in London
