Abstract

My story is essentially about economic power and the displacement of people, and the displacement of activity on the land by other activities, all driven by economic forces. I begin with some history of the origins of the story, and then relate two separate phases of intense political struggle, during which time the nature of activism changed and we encountered some serious problems. I will conclude with a description of where we are now, still in the midst of this 20- year struggle.
