Six-week Creative writing class with Luke Hauser & Friends, via zoom.
Next class begins Saturday February 6, 2-4pm California time. Cost is sliding scale $99-299, with some scholarship assistance available.
We just posted several new issues of the original Direct Action newspapers – namesake of Luke Hauser’s novel and source of many of the stories contained therein.
Free downloads of a dozen original issues as PDFs, along with activist handbooks and a PDF of the book.
Direct action has a long and honored place in American history – from the revolution itself through abolitionists, suffragists, union organizers, civil rights advocates, feminist and gay rights activists, and on to today’s vibrant climate and social justice organizing.
Join author Luke Hauser for a profusely illustrated 25-minute journey through our past. We’ll focus especially on nonviolent organizing from 1980 to the present, with sections on the 1980s anti-nuke movement and 2011’s Occupy actions.
Originally created around 2000, the show has been updated with a revised text and many new images.
So make a big bowl of popcorn, pull up your beanbag chair, and get ready for a journey through our history!

Several thousand Bay Area activists shut down the central financial district of San Francisco, known as Wall Street West.
The September 25, 2019 actions were part of international climate justice events, including the global student strike on September 20.
Reclaiming’s Bay Area Pagan Cluster – Witches Invoking Creative Climate Action, or WICCA – organized a ritual for mid-afternoon. The cluster processed down California Street singing We Are the Rising Sun, then did a short Equinox ritual in the middle of the “mural district” of Montgomery Street, ending with a spiral dance to Our Hands Will Work for Peace and Justice (Harvest Chant).
