Professor Russo’s new article is the cover feature in Race and Class.

Our new SOAN colleague, Prof. Chandra Russo, has the cover article in the newest issue of Race and Class.  Prof Russo’s article, “Witness Against Torture, Guantánamo and solidarity as resistance,” focuses on the group Witness Against Torture, a community that has been calling for the closure of the Guantánamo Prison since 2005.  Witness Against Torture is one of three social movement organizations that Prof Russo has studied as part of a larger project examining activism in resistance to US security policies.  Prof Russo notes that while her article focuses on how Witness Against Torture is working to close Guantánamo, she also analyzes how they joined with the Black Lives Matter movement during January of 2015 to link militarism and imprisonment abroad to policing and incarceration within the US interior.  Congratulations to Prof. Russo on this important new publication!
