masonFrom Croatan Earth First!

January 26th is Marie Mason’s Birthday! Come celebrate this herbal healer, musician, mother, activist and eco-sabatour extrordinaire with us at Internationalist Books on Saturday, January 26th at 7pm. We’ll be writing letters and birthday cards to Marie and other eco-prisoners, eating snacks, socializing and watching a short video about the Earth Liberation Front. Marie Mason is presently serving 22 years in prison for a series of arsons against the timber and biotech industries. After being informed on by her ex-husband she took a non-cooperating plea deal, refusing to inform on any of her codefendents. 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.

Peter Gelderloos is an anarchist from the south who has spent the last five years living and organizing in Barcelona, and is the author of How Nonviolence Protects the State.
