Portland-based writer and activist Anthony Alvarado, author of DIY Resistance: 36 Ways to Fight Back (Seven Stories Press) speaks today about successful actions people's movements use to defeat tyrants: defend free speech, look after your community, fight racism and misogyny, organize, protest, network, publish. The lessons of successful resistance are rich and they are everywhere around us. Take note, find your inspiration and your strength, and join others around you who share your commitment. Anthony Alvarado is the host of the monthly podcast The Magic Hour. His previous book, DIY Magic—originally self-published, then in a second edition from TarcherPerigee—is a collection of how-to techniques for creativity.
