Part one of a two part interview with farmer, anarchist, organiser and author Aric McBay, on his book Full Spectrum Resistance—an historical overview on building movements, actions and strategies for change.
In a fascinating and in depth interview with Bursts from The Final Straw Radio, McBay covers the climate justice movement and it’s unique potential for facilitating widespread interconnectivity and synthesis between other social movements.
Based on the concept of common ground—and using successful examples from the South African anti-apartheid movement, the women’s suffrage movement, the US civil rights movement, and Wet'suwet'en land rights and anti-pipeline solidarity campaigns—McBay outlines aspects of full spectrum resistance in building social movements; including diversity of tactics, cooperation between people using different tactics, solidarity between movements and intersectional approaches.
