Imperiled Life California tour

May 29, 2012

NB: All the artwork in Imperiled Life is the work of Santi Armengod, for whose collaboration and solidarity I am grateful.

My first book, Imperiled Life: Revolution against Climate Catastrophe, has just been published by AK Press and the Institute for Anarchist Studies as the fourth title in the Anarchist Interventions series.

The following details the release-events I have planned for the near future in California (northern/U.S., i.e. not Baja), as well as those I have held so far:

Friday, May 25 at the Holdout in Oakland
