Quarrel the Zine, stories of survivor self determination, direct action, and strategies for safer spaces
QUARRREL is a Bay Area affinity group that formed to take names and kick ass with an anti-colonial, queer, feminist boot.
We support the self-determination of survivors and use harm reduction inspired techniques in survivor led actions to transform our communities into safer spaces.
We work towards developing alternatives for addressing harm outside of the misogyny, racism, and classism of the police state. We support and value accountability processes, see them as critical to the practice of transformative justice, and believe they can take many forms. In this work we have found the tools of harm reduction useful for addressing people with patterns of abuse and unwillingness to be accountable. We have confronted perpetrators of assault, set boundaries, presented community demands, and shared information as an act of self-defense.
