Launch for "Protest Against Police Brutality"
a woodcut print book by Chris Robertson (La Presse Du Chat Perdu)
Thursday, March 6th, 2014
5 à 7, le cagibi, 5490 St. Laurent
taking place within the week of actions coordinated by the Collective Opposed to Police Brutality (COBP), toward the annual protest against police brutality on March 15.
Artist and screen printer Chris Robertson (La Presse Du Chat Perdu), will be launching a recently created booklet of woodcuts describing experiences in a police kettle targeting participants of the annual protest against police brutality in Montréal in 2013.
This booklet launches as activists are building toward the annual mobilization against police brutality, that again this year will take place as municipal politicians (despite recent elections) and police forces maintain the P6 regulation, that unconstitutionally makes illegal unscripted protests, stifling the basic freedom to publicly assembly, obliging all protesters to seek state permission to demonstrate.
Created and printed by hand in a Montréal, Mile End studio on Van Horne avenue. The beautiful woodcut drawings in the booklet convey both the violence of police repression, specifically the kettling tactic, while illuminating determined spirit of people taking the streets.
