"The People’s Indictment of the U.S. Government in the Making of a Narco-State"

A research report in the public interest produced in partnership by the D+M Lab and School of the Americas Watch.

TRANSFORMATIVE JUSTICE + DEMOCRACY

The relationship between transformative justice and decolonizing campuses, cities, and nations is an integral part of our research on democracy. Such research begins with the recognition that slavery and other forms of violent subjugation, extraction, and displacement have long time been tied to the nominal cause of democracy in the United States and other parts of the world. Citizenship, elections, and practices of representation continue
to be dependent on unequal and violent systems of exclusion. Thus, to work towards a transformation of these systems and a genuine practice of democracy, as scholars we situate our work alongside public demands to organize for racial justice in land back, reparations, and political-cultural movements to further decolonize our neighborhoods and institutions of learning.
