Friday May 24th at 6pm- Defending the Land in Northern California

Defending the Land in Northern California
A presentation by Will Parrish

Friday, May 24th - 6pm
Co-hosted by Santa Cruz Indigenous Solidarity

Highway construction, land and water grabs and deforestation pose major threats to California’s North Coast bioregions.  But to paraphrase Foucault, where there is destruction by state and corporate power, there is also resistance.

This presentation will describe several direct action resistance movements in the North Coast region in recent years, with a major focus on the anti-highway struggle in Willits. The Willits Bypass threatens greater destruction of wetlands than any project in Northern California in the last 50 years.

Come hear inspiring stories of community efforts to defend the land, and learn about plans for future action this summer and beyond and how you can lend support!

Will Parrish is a journalist and anarchist who lives in Ukiah.

Comments on the SubRosa website are fully moderated. As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
