Ani and Lyn discuss the Free Cascadia Movement with local activists

The ultimate conclusion to "act locally" is the secession of the People's Republic of Cascadia. Why? What would this mean? What sections of the planet would it cover? Will the old United States of America miss us? What about the people who were really here first? Can you be a bioregionalist without being a secessionist?

We talk with local Cascadia activists Alexander Baretich, Jason Thomas and Mario Haro live in studio about their work to free our beloved corner of the world, from what many consider the tyranny of an old order of annexation.

Know your rights! Listen to find out about grand juries and political harassment.

Ani and Lyn talk with Lauren Regan, the founder and executive director of the Civil Liberties Defense Center (CLDC), where she also serves as the staff attorney.

Political repression is on the rise.  Several homes have been raided in Portland, Olympia, and Seattle as part of a grand jury investigation, and the warrants served listed anarchist literature as something they were looking for.  Infiltrators and provocateurs have been used to target, disrupt and entrap activists.  These actions can have a chilling effect on activists and our communities.  

Knowing your rights is critically important.  What do you need to know to protect yourself?
