this episode of The Solecast I chat with Scott Olsen and Graham
Clumpner of About Face (Formerly known as Iraq Veterans Against The
War). Scott and Graham were both involved in Occupy Oakland,
Scott is most famously known for almost getting killed when OPD hit
him in the head with a bean bag round that was followed by the
first general strike in recent US history. Much of Graham’s
work today is based around environmental/climate change struggles.
We talk about their experiences in the military and what its going
to take to build an anti-war movement in the US. We discuss
the roles veterans can play in radical movements and some ways that
active duty military can resist. We go into some of the
history of anti war resistance and discuss what anti-imperialism
means in the face of climate change.
