Combatting the Prison Industrial Complex
Advocating Decriminalization of Illicit Drug Use in Nashville
Nashville, TN - On February 6th, 2018 local residents converged on the Cordell Hull Building in Nashville, Tennessee to encourage the Commissioner to support a bill that would effectively decriminalize marijuana use. Local anarchists and antifascists (Nashville AntiFa, Nashville Anarchist Black Cross, and Middle Tennessee Autonomous Network) gathered to advocate for this bill. Although the vast majority of citizens attending were advocating decriminalization to facilitate the utility of medical and recreational cannabis, anarchist and antifascist support was largely predicated on the fact that this bill would be an important cap in the prison pipeline for petty drug crimes.
