Above is a video about a group called The Peaceful Streets Project. ┬áThe Peaceful Streets Project is a “watchdog” group in Austin, Texas, that keeps tabs on the police and keeps an eye out for police brutality and abuse of power.

According to their website, “The Peaceful Streets Project is an all-volunteer, grassroots effort uniting people to end the institutional violence taking place on our streets. Through community organizing and direct action tactics, the Peaceful Streets Project seeks to support communities in understanding, exercising, and standing up for our rights.”

The vision of the Austin Peaceful Streets Project is “a society free of state-sponsored institutionalized violence.”

“Through community organizing, engaging in non-political and non-violent direct action tactics, and utilizing new technologies, the Peaceful Streets Project seeks to bring about a cultural shift where individuals understand their rights and hold law enforcement officials accountable, and communities protect and serve each other.”
