The subject of an armed house raid on June 3, 2014 will speak personally about his experience of being politically targeted by the Vancouver police. He will share his involvement in anti-pipeline activism and the anarchist movement prior to and after the house raid. Insights into living ‘under the gun’ and the mental and physical effects of being raided will also be discussed. The speaker will provide an uncompromising view of the struggle against the pipelines and the system as a whole.
We're having a $2 BOOK SALE at Camas!
More books will be marked down and added to the sale every day or two, so keep coming by to check em out!
Camas is featuring the publications of Black & Red Press, which was founded by Fredy and Lorraine Perlman. The Perlmans were instrumental in introducing the ideas of the Situationist International to the English-speaking world and called attention to anarchist currents in France during a near revolution in 1968 (Fredy Perlman was a participant). B&R went on to contribute to the development of various currents in anarchism, notably “anarchist-primitivism.” B&R also has a Canadian connection: some books were printed at Dumont Press, a cooperatively-owed press based in Kitchener-Waterloo.
