Diana Block will read and discuss her new radical feminist novel, Clandestine Occupations. Based on lived experience, this suspenseful novel spans two generations of activist women moving from the passions of seventies to the awakenings of the Occupy movement and even beyond - to a boldly imagined insurgency of the future.
Diana is an active member of the California Coalition for Women Prisoners and the author of the memoir Arm the Spirit: A Woman's Journey Underground and Back.

Federal prisoner Dennis Mahon and Auntie Racist writings on free speech, resistance and the consequences thereof. This ain't heaven, this is America. We're not equal, we're not free and we're not happy. Yes we believe in the value of those things, but we haven't got there yet.
We all have our freedom of speech and assembly and the right to bear arms and all that. But it's not free. In order to keep even the right to continue seeking them we have to beat down our enemies, the government and our own greed and bad habits of thinking. [...]
