Episode 2: Eco Dissent/Not Terrorism
Edward Abbey – Glen Canyon Dam
Art of Resistance

When Edward Abbey went to the Glen Canyon Dam to drop a banner, EarthFirst! was born. And we’re grateful filmmaker Christopher McLeod was there to record it. Please visit his website and check out (and support) his work. http://www.sacredland.org
