Weekly Program
Brooke of Foreclosure Defense Group, Occupy Oakland
 The Final Straw Radio  Contact Contributor
This week we feature an interview conducted by an Audio Cadre of ours on the West coast with Brooke, an anarchist who participated in the Foreclosure Defense Group (https://foreclosuredefensegroup.wordpress.com/) that sprang from Occupy Oakland in March of 2012. During the hour, they speak about the history of that group, it's strengths and weakness and lessons around cross-race and cross-class organizing around displacement in Oakland based on some of the models worked out by SolNet, the Seattle Solidarity Network (http://seattlesolidarity.net/). For an extended version of the conversation, check out the podcast version of the show.

If you're in Asheville on Friday, December 18th, there will be a free event you can check out at this calendar listing: https://www.firestorm.coop/events/1673-defend-the-zad-defend-autonomy.html

From the description:
"ZAD is a large scale land occupation near Notre-Dame-des-Landes, France. It was squatted in 2009 at the invitation of local citizen and farming associations, who had been resisting the imposition of an airport, highway, high speed train, and tram line since 1972. Since then, the anti-airport movement has depassed traditional limitations of "issue-based struggles" with a strong critique of capitalist and hierarchical systems (including and especially the State), and links and shared projects with a wide diversity of people, to the point where the divisions between squatter, farmer, local, have become blurred.

After a massive police operation in 2012, "Operation Cesar", the zone of 8 miles square has been free of State intervention, and has become known as a "zone outside the law". Zadistas have created our own infrastructures and are autonomous in many ways. Some things work less well, like conflict resolution, but overall the occupation is settled into the territory and is planning for the long term, together with the "locals" and "farmers" involved in the struggle and those living close by. At the moment, however, the French prime minister is threatening to evict the ZAD and begin work on the airport early 2016. Ironically, they are waiting until just after the COP 21 in Paris (while billing the airport as "good for the environment")."
