    Hey Folks,
    Please share this far and wide.
    The link below takes you to a page where you can watch a four-part video
    from a panel discussion on the history and evolution of ARA with three
    long-time Minneapolis Anti-Racist Action members, one of whom was a key
    figure in the founding and early history of ARA. The other two were a key
    part of broadening ARA to also attack sexism and homophobia and to get the
    group to work on it's internal dynamics and early problem of being a
    male-dominated space (and also incidences of sexual assault). The talk
    covers a broad scope of their activities over the years including many
    important things that almost no one knows about such as their methods of
    cop-watching which are VERY different than the way it's practiced today.
    Important relevant history and food for thought!
