A talk from a participant in the local anarchist Yippie movement, and other anti-authoritarian activism of the 1970s. The Yippies were Vancouver's first anarchist group and they turned the city upside down in the 1970s. Yippies combined an imaginative protest style with creative day-to-day organizing, while producing g...round-breaking publications (The Open Road, B.C. Blackout).
Along the way, they did everything from organizing the Gastown Smoke-In, to invading America, to building a people’s park, to playing a considerable role in politicizing the counter-culture and punk rock.
