Strike Debt New York City has completed its work on the 2nd edition of the Debt Resistors’ Operations Manual (DROM). Come learn about the new edition, about Strike Debt, and meet cool people who are helping in the international struggle against oppressive and immoral debt.
Music, food, short talks by two famous activists and political philosophers – George Caffentzis (a founder of the Midnight Notes Collective) and Silvia Federici – and the opportunity to purchase the 2nd edition DROM at a sliding scale are all “on the agenda.”
This manual—written by an anonymous collective of resistors, defaulters, and allies from Strike Debt and Occupy Wall Street—aims to provide specific tactics for understanding and fighting against the debt system. You’ll find detailed strategies and resources for dealing with credit card, medical, student, housing and municipal debt, tactics for navigating the pitfalls of personal bankruptcy, and information to help protect yourself from predatory lenders. Recognizing that individually we can only do so much to resist the system of debt, the manual also introduces ideas for those who have made the decision to take collective action.
Strike Debt supports the creation of just and sustainable economies, based on mutual aid, common goods, and public affluence. We owe the financial institutions nothing. It is to our friends, families and community that we owe everything.
