Movement History on the West Coast

There is an exciting new initiative from No One Is Illegal - Vancouver Coast Salish Territories called "Inheriting Resistance: A Community History Project". They just released their first video from that project, a short snippet with long-time activist Jean Swanson giving advice to younger activists. Take a couple of minutes and watch it:

Swanson is an amazing activist who has been involved in a lot of different struggles over many, many years. Her 2001 book Poor-Bashing: The Politics of Exclusion is a great grassroots resource for and about struggles against poverty.
