This afternoon, the folks over at The Final Straw interviewed us and put our message on the air. The Final Straw, and their host Burst O’ Goodness, have been ruling the radical waves since 2009 and have lent their far reaching voice to a variety of radical movements.
Here is what this week’s show has in store for folks.
This week’s show features a conversation with Will Potter about
political repression against accused Anarchists in the Pacific
Northwest. Later, we’ll speak with Bryan of Katuah Earth First! about
his participation in a recent action in West Virginia against Mountain
Our first segment of this weeks show is a conversation with Will Potter,
award-winning journalist, author and blogger at www.greenisthenewred.com
about the JTTF & FBI raids on suspected Anarchists in the Pacific
Northwest and the series of Grand Juries now being convened around
participation in the May 1st protests in Seattle of this year.
Also, we’ll be speaking with Bryan, a member of Katuah Earth First!,
based out of Asheville. Bryan was arrested on July 28th during a
non-violent direct action under the banner of Radical Action for
Mountain People’s Survival (RAMPS). This action briefly shut down and
brought attention to the Mountain Top Removal style of strip mining
being used at the Hobet mine, operated by Patriot Coal in Lincoln
County, West Virginia. We talk about the Katuah bioregion, Fracking in
North Carolina and getting involved to save our landbase.
