Episode 8 | Crime and Punishment Welcome to this episode where we’re discussing crime, arrest, abolitionist theory and its relation to the criminal justice system. Our discussion was sparked by this thought-provoking article: https://www.resilience.org/stories/2019-10-31/the-flawed-social-science-behind-extinction-rebellions-change-strategy/ . We highly recommend giving it a read! Throughout the conversation, we return to the matter of arrest and criminalisation of marginalised communities, particularly relating to how certain strategies perpetuate cycles of violence and harm rather than challenge power. Together, we explore the history and meaning of abolitionism and the importance of a comprehensive analysis of the criminal justice system. This is just the beginning of a series of conversations on crime and punishment, so be sure to join us and share your thoughts.
