CPR was lucky enough to be in attendance and record this event on February 28, 2019 – presented by Solidarity Kingston – dedicated to building communities of support and solidarity, rather than ones of suspicion and fear.

Speakers included:

Monia Mazigh, Author and Human Rights Advocate
Sharry Aiken, Faculty of Law, Queen’s University
Jeff Monaghan, Institute of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Carleton University

They discussed:
– the context, history and contemporary analysis about the ways that anti-terrorist legislation can target and criminalize Muslim communities and key characteristics from many of these cases
– how surveillance impacts communities and how can communities and people targeted by surveillance can be safe
– how communities can effectively respond in these moments

Presented in English with Arabic interpretation. CPR is happy to share this broader conversation about police powers, criminalizing of identities, and surveillance with you.

First up, Chelsea Barabas and Rodrigo Ochigame of MIT outline the reformist logic of pre-trial assessment and discuss the recent history of individualized actuarial fairness…

Hamid Khan of the Stop LAPD Spying Coalition provides historical context for surveillance and algorithmic policing tools deployed by the state, and how they connect with redlining and the suppression of dissent.
