Come to the Wingnut on Friday March 11th at 7pm
to watch a 50 minute documentary called These Streets are Watching.

We will have coffee, donuts, and information about Richmond Copwatch to accompany this movie.

If the weather is nice we will project the film in the front yard.

The Streets are Watching is a 50 minute video that takes a fresh look at police accountability through the eyes of three communities; Denver, Cincinnati and Berkeley. Independent filmmaker, Jacob Crawford, weaves three cities responses to police brutality into a single tale of community empowerment and direct action.

Within an amazing collection of footage that portrays police conduct and misconduct, the film conveys basic legal concepts that can provide practical help to groups and individuals seeking a clearer understanding of their rights when dealing with police. The film is divided into sections that explain our basic rights, tactics for documenting police activity and ideas for further action and organizing.
