On Apri 7th at PSU KBOO had the pleasure to record a presentation from former political prisoner Daniel McGowan about his experiences in the Earth Liberation Front (ELF), time in federal prison, & the necessity of broadening the scope of radical movements and supporting prisoners as we face a rising of the far right.

Daniel spoke to a full house about his activist trajectory and years spent in the Pacific Northwest as well as what the Trump administration means for people that are part of resistance movements. He argued for a broader scope to our movements and the need for leftists to fight the rising 'alt-right' and assorted fascist groups as well as defend & work with marginalized communities.

This was Daniel's first trip back to the Northwest since the day he was sentenced in June 2007.

The preserntation was followed by a question and answer period, where the questioners were not recorded.
