Two grandmothers and a third resident of the valley attempted to deliver a list of demands. The residents were met by the plant's head of security who refused to allow them to present their demands. When the residents again attempted to present their demands, they were arrested in a moving and dramatic act of civil conscience.

12 MONKEYS at Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In (5/27)

2_guerilla-drive-in-logo.gifTerry Gilliam directs 12 Monkeys, a densely plotted, visually dynamic post-apocalyptic thriller. It is a movie that is as bleak as it is mind-bending, a dystopian nightmare that seems uncomfortably plausible. Bruce Willis is a brutalized, misunderstood time-traveler sent to the present from 2035 where the scattered remains of humanity live deep underground. An intoxicating blend of existential science fiction and unrequited romance. Wild and beautiful and deeply disturbing all at once.

Without Cause: Yale Fires An Acclaimed Anarchist Scholar

"David Graeber, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Yale University, and the author of Toward an Anthropological Theory of Value: The False Coin of Our Own Dreams and Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology, among many other scholarly publications. Last week Prof. Graeber was informed that his teaching contract at Yale would not be extended. However, it was not Graeber's scholarship that was ever in question; rather it was his political philosophies that may have played a heavy hand in the administration's unwarranted decision. Graeber, a renowned anarchist scholar, recently spoke with CounterPuncher Joshua Frank about the fiasco. As one of our other favorite anthropologists David Price put it, this "is a ghastly look under the hood at how academic knowledge is manufactured at America's 'finest' institutions.""
