The author of "Chav Solidarity", D.Hunter presents "Tracksuits, Traumas and Class Traitors" this book is about the ways in which economically and socially marginalised people use their abolitionist imaginations on a daily basis. It's about the fight for dignity in the face of unrelenting contempt. It uses some of the authors own experience living in poverty throughout his first 25 years, as he goes in and out of prison, the care system and homelessness, and how he can his fellow travellers navigate trauma and each other. It's about the violence of white supremacist patriarchal capitalism, and the ways in which this violence hurts our bodies and minds. It's about love, care and solidarity being the everyday revolutionary practice from below.
