We are going to be having many interesting workshops and speakers this year and we wanted to give you a little taste of what’s in store.
Folks from Long Haul Infoshop are going to be talking about People’s Park Still Blooming, edited by Terri Compost. People’s Park was a vacant lot seized in 1969 by activists in order to build a park. This park would also come to serve as a counter-cultural experiment that continues to have a lasting impact in the area.
We are also going to have a showing of The Chicago Conspiracy, a film about post-Pinochet Chile and the social war that is taking place there. We’re planning to have a discussion after the the film as well.
In addition, Kristian Williams, the author of Our Enemies in Blue: Police Power in America and American Methods: Torture and the Logic of Domination will give a talk and discussion called Killer Cops and Cop Killers.
CCAT (Campus Center for Appropriate Technology) will be putting on an awesome appropriate technology workshop.
Steve Ongerth will discuss his new book, One Big Union: In The Redwood Empire.
Paul Lerudee from the Gaza Freedom Flotillas will give a presentation of his experiences on the Flotilla mission.
Steven, a veteran squatter from Oakland, California is giving a workshop on squatting.
Your very own Humboldt Grassroots will be hosting a workshop on what is Anarchism and Anarchist movement building.
Jessica Whatcott will be doing an Anarcha-feminist Workshop.
