This is a one hour radical history presentation of a Talk by Andrew Cornell author of "Oppose and Propose: Lessons from Movement For A New Society" given May 12, 2011 at Denny Hall at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA.

Movement for a New Society, a radical pacifist organization active in the 1970s and 1980s, pioneered forms of consen­sus decision-making, communal living, direct action, and self-education now central to antiauthoritarian movements.

In this talk, followed by a discussion, Andrew Cornell will place Movement for a New Society in the broader history of U.S. anarchism and post-1960s radicalism, while offering an assessment of the strategies and conceptual tools it left to current movements.
