Lines in Sand is a collection by Peter Gelderloos that looks critically at identity politics and anti-oppression politics. All of them are very thought provoking and well worth reading. These aren’t knee-jerk criticisms, but rather are thoughtful explorations of the problematic aspects of identity and anti-oppression politics and practice.
Environmental activists have been taking more risks in attacking the root causes of climate change. From the #ShellNo protests in Seattle to the recent lock-down In Bellingham, WA where activists chained themselves to a #ShellOil support vessel set to leave the marine waters for Alaska oil drilling, direct action in the Pacific Northwest is alive and well.
