Tactical Defense Caucus (TDC) is a small but active caucus within
the Anarchist Black
Cross Federation. We hope to provide information about self
defense, which is not otherwise readily available, to the left in
general, anarchists in particular, and the ABCF primarily. While
the TDC focuses its efforts on armed self defense, we encourage
activists to become familiar with, learn and study self defense
on all levels. We participate in many forms of self defense ourselves..
Our decision to focus our outreach primarily on armed self defense
is based on several factors, but by no means do we feel armed self
defense is the only answer. In fact, we believe it is the last,
and least desirable answer. True as this may be, we also recognize
that on the occasion when armed self defense is the only answer,
it is much too late to learn.
