Direct Action: Reflections on Armed Resistance and the Squamish Five

Artist: 
Ann Hansen
Year: 
2002
Price:
$14.78 (CAD)

Ann Hansen reflects on the successes and failures of the bombings she participated in in the 1980s, and dispels some of the common myths surrounding not only her actions, but armed struggle in general. She also explores the differences between direct action and terrorism as means of affecting social change; laying the groundwork for defining what direct action means, what its guiding principles are, and how it can be applied successfully and meaningfully in today's political climate.

Includes text on the Vancouver Five by the late Jim Campbell, a longtime Toronto prisoner rights activist and anarchist organizer.
