Saturday Slideshow on global resistance to technology

July 24th at 7pm there will be a stellar slideshow at the Cascadia Rising Infoshop (1540 SE Clinton). The presentors include the creator of the 2002 memorable "Squat Slideshow" featuring slides and stories from the squats of Spain, as well as members of Wildroots.

Wildroots is a 30-acre radical homestead adjacent about 45 minutes from Asheville, NC. Their focus is on experiential learning and living, while practicing, developing and sharing skills - Wildroots lives off the grid, carrying their water from nearby streams, engaging in permaculture, gardening by the moon, natural and primitive shelter building, hide tanning, herbal medicine, nature crafts, and wild food foraging.

Don't miss it!

Wildroots: beyond civilization, a slideshow and discussion about realizing our wildest dreams.

Come join us for an evening of pictures and words that demonstrate the range of lifeways possible in opposition to industrial civilization. We will examine radical homesteading, primitive skills, protest and resistance culture, edible landscaping, permaculture, sustenance through wild plants and road-kill, building out of both wild and natural materials, "appropriate" technology, squatting, food politics, urban foraging, bioregionalism and more.
