In 1975, author Edward Abbey published "The Monkey Wrench Gang." The novel – along with Abbey's anarchist environmentalism – helped create a blueprint for direct action and civil disobedience in the 70s, 80s and even today. A new documentary called WRENCHED looks at the influence of Abbey on groups like EarthFirst! and more recently the Occupy Movement.
On Monday, March 3rd director ML Lincoln and others will join us on RadioWest. LINK
