: TINY BEAST COLLECTIVE : PRESENTS : Wake Up! A profile of Positive Force DC (1991) + Positive Force More than a Witness ( 2014)

CommunityWise Resource Centre
Punk activist collective Positive Force DC emerged in 1985, rising from the creative, politically charged ferment of DC punk’s Revolution Summer. Born in a dynamic local scene sparked by Bad Brains, Minor Threat, and Rites of Spring, a handful of young activists also drew inspiration from UK anarcho-punks Crass and the original “Positive Force” band Seven Seconds to become one of the most long-lasting and influential exponents of punk politics.
