“This is a powerful and important contribution to the legacy of the George Floyd Uprising. Written from the heart of the uprising, Minneapolis, this is an account which brings together on the ground reporting and theoretical analysis. Read this now, in order to prepare for the next uprising.” —Shemon Salam, co-author of The Revolutionary Meaning of the George Floyd Uprising

After taking the reader through firsthand accounts of the rebellion that followed the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Nevada argues that a revolutionary abolition must abolish not only the police but the law itself. It is this difference where they locate the limit of the uprising in Minneapolis, and the limit of the future uprisings to come.
