Port Stories: Sharing Lessons
Becca Echeverria will presenting on the political movement, Port Militarization Resistance (PMR). PMR was a group formed in 2006 which responded to the militarization of our local WA ports by informing the public what was happening and taking direct action to stop shipments of military vehicle known as Strikers. The group ended in 2010 in part because a military spy was discovered to be a member of the group. Becca will explain events using a timeline and talk about how PMR fits into a longer tradition of port resistance in WA.
