Breaking Chains: Towards Gentler Futures

Reading about drug policy, policing, the death penalty and prison conditions is one thing. It's quite another to be able to hear from people who have been through the system, or to see and handle the objects that former prisoners have chosen as significant to their experiences. What about playing a cooperative card game that encourages us to think about the role of community and solidarity within Singapore's punitive drug policing regime? Or watch films reflecting on the lives of people sentenced to death?

We'll have all this (and more!) at the inaugural TJFest by the Transformative Justice Collective, titled 'Breaking Chains: Towards Gentler Futures'.

Different working groups have come together to present a wide variety of events, experiences and activities, held over three weekends in July. Whether you like making zines, or would prefer to sit and listen to panel discussions, there's something for everyone. TJC has worked really hard on this and we're all looking forward to sharing these experiences with as many people as we can, so please share this widely!

The first woman to be executed in Singapore in about 20 years

Singapore is set to execute two of its citizens this week, one of them the first woman to be executed in about 20 years. We defend the death penalty with cries of sovereignty, but the War on Drugs doesn't even have Singaporean roots.
