She has been, and continues to be, a very active member of the Earth First Community. Posters and literature about the Earth Liberation Front and earth liberation prisoners will be available.

Against Democracy

Visiting writer, Peter Gelderloos will share historical and personal accounts illustrating how the rhetoric of democracy is used to obscure truly non-hierarchical ways of building our collective strength. He’ll focus on his experiences of the centralization of power within the Plaza Occupations in Barcelona that in many ways paralleled the Occupy Movement here.
