About the Book:

As neoliberalism has increasingly dispossessed and exploited various communities, state repression has intensified against the dispossessed and those who challenge capitalism’s racist, speciesist, and classist practices. Abolishing Surveillance: Digital Media Activism and State Repression explores the incorporation of digital media activism within collective organizing against state surveillance and repression that concerns Latinx copwatching groups within New York City, Muslim American communities within Minneapolis, undercover animal rights activist exposing animal cruelty of factory farming, and counter-summit protesters. By drawing four social movements normally not discussed in relation to one another, the book charts the connections and differences between various communities’ resistance to state repression and the varied ways in which such repression impacts such communities.
